    Lmao, you fail @ computers?

    First thing you should know: ALWAYS install antiviral and anti-spyware on your cpu as soon as you can go online.

    And Pat, Vista is NOT going to ask you to buy $20 or software. It doesn't just download ads T-T. I'd be like DD and call you a fucking moron who has misconceptions, but I don't feel like it right now.

    Anyways, when you ALWAYS open up this folder? Maybe TELL us what to folder is, what you use it for, etc etc. Obviously unless it's your porn folder, lmao.

    I'd guess it's a virus or maybe a worm that has got into your folders, though I doubt it's a worm, because you'd know. Also, Windows Defender does fuck all for protection,everyone should know this. I'd say to get Antivirus and AntiSpyware software and to scan IMMEDIATELY, Nev has some good software, I'd say to check any of those links for good, free protection.

    So, if you HAVE protection (I'd doubt it since you used Windows defender to scan :/) scan, if you don't, look for some; Nev's sticky in this area would help. If neither works, I dunno what else to say. Only thing I can think of is reformat, because this looks like a virus/worm, and it might be too far gone to do anything OTHER then format again.

    And now, I shall wait for DD/ someone else to come in here, de-bunk everyone, and give a way that WILL work.

    ...

    Again, as I said, preformed the scan with WHAT? It ALL depends on what you use to scan, don't just tell us you did a scan, you need to tell us the SPECIFICS of everything if you want any help. We can't just read your mind, you know..

    What? I didn't say anything hinting towards that. I'd be like DD and call you a fucking moron who has misconceptions, and I will.

    you fucking moron, read, then post

    Are you sure its a "risk" and not the UAC just bugging you?

    The UAC prompt looks like this (Though they do differ slightly)

    http://weblog.infoworld.com/stratdev/Wi ... 5B2%5D.png

    If this is the case, if you wish to disable it, go to the windows flag icon (aka start) in the search bar, type

    msconfig

    Then press enter.

    A popup will appear with the system config ultil. Click on tools, scroll down in the list and click Disable UAC, then click launch. You'll need to reboot and it wont bug you again.
