    There are all these ".zpTEMP" folders in My Documents folder. Bellow is a picture of My Documents folder.
    Does anyone know where they came from? I have seen similar folders suddenly appear in the past but I never found out what they where.
    Thanks

    What's in them?
    Did you download and install drivers from the internet?

    Dunno, but I can't see any AV running on that machine either. Could there be temp files for something like a DVD burner?
