Deleted items keep coming back
Posted on 2005-04-26
Since some week now, we are experiencing a weird situation in windows XP: my collegue deletes some items on his desktop, switches off the pc, and goes home. The next day, he puts on the computer (it is a laptop), and the items are back on his desktop.
We tried some things: delete with Shift-Del, emptying the recycle bin, ran an adaware scan.
We don't really know where to look first to be honest. It is connected to a network, but in the files it makes little difference: some were from te network, but most of them were files that were stored locally.
Has it maybe something to do with the desktop that tries to recover or something? I guess not, but we really don't have a clue why the files are not deleted as we are asking.
Does anybody knows a possible reason for this? Tx!
