    I dont know why, but once in a while, i get a "My Music" folder on my desktop. I dont create or anything, but it just appears there. ANd its an empty folder. It usually happens when im downloading something, and then the folder is automatically created, but sometimes i can be doin nothin and it appears. I remember though, that i made my own "My Music" folder and eventually deleted it. I would put all my music there (its a different folder than the one that Windows has). But i eventually deleted it and now put all my music in the folder that Windows provides. But the folder automatically creates itself. What can i do to stop this automatic creation of this folder?
