    Why is windows automaticaly sometimes puts a "new folder(2)" on my destktop without me doing anything? I'll go browsing the web with a clean desktop, then minumize my browser and there it a folder I didnt put there. Also, how come windows isnt remembering my typed searches, I never turned that off or anything.

    Can't tell you about the mystery folder...

    What browser and XP version are you running? If you use Cleanup! or another utility to clear cookies and cached files, your typed searches are being removed each time you run it. If you're using IE6.X, have you clicked tools, internet options, advanced tab, under 'browsing', tick 'use inline autocomplete'?
