'%' folder created RRS feed

  • Question

  • Every time I open internet explorer 8, a folder with the name '%' is created on the desktop. It can be deleted, only to reappear when IE8 is opened again. The contents of the folder are as follows:

    4 directories with the names 2J8IDL3K, 3N38YC6E, 6U44UULA AND 8CXTF7T5. It also contains the follwing 2 files: desktop (1kb config settings) and index (16kb DAT file). Each of the 4 folders has 1 file within it, namely: desktop (1kb config settings). I have been trying to resolve this problem since July 2010 without any success. The It techs at work have also given up.  Please help. Please email solution to: [redacted]. Thanking you in advance.
