    I have windows 2k, with pretty recent windows updates. (Service Pack 4 I think)
    The computer is not connected to the internet so it has no recent anti-virus updates.
    We do use flash memory that contains material dowloaded from other computers that are connected tot he internet.

    When I go to tools on the folder's drop down menus, folder options does not appear.
    Map network... disconnect..., and syncronize.. do appear. Just not folder options.

    Also, on the flash memory drive, fake folders appear. They display with icons that look like folders. But it file type in the details view it is a progam.
    When you click the program, you get to my documents in the local machine.
    If you delete or erase the quasi folders, they come back.

    What do I have here.
    What can I do?
