New Folder Reappearing on Vista Desktop

A New Folder keeps appearing on my Vista Ultimate Desktop.  The folder keeps appearing when I select any file in the Windows Explorer by either: 1. Right clicking on the file, 2. Copying the file, 3. Deleting a file

I have checked all programs, including Windows Media Player and non seem to point to this new folder on my desktop.  I have also run many virus scans with Windows Defender, Norton 360, Spybot, Ad-Aware, and still the problem is there.  I have also checked all profiles and the folder is not on the
desktops for any other profile.

Please advise, this folder appearing is very annoying, and I cannot think why it has happened and want to be able to stop it.

Thanks, Sat.

As a troubleshooting guide you should run Process Monitor from Sysinternals (Microsoft), reproduce the problem, and then see what process called for the directory to be created.  Other than that, I can't say I've seen this problem before.

I have had a similar problem with the StartUp folder appearing on the desktop for no apparent reason and then disappearing again when the user logs off/on.

I never did find the cause - but sounds similar

Thanks, the problem was resolved by downloading and running Process Monitor.  From here, I was able to see that the New Folder was created from my Bluetooth process, which makes sense as to why is was always created when I select a file.  I have changed the settings in my Bluetooth program to point to an appropriate folder rather than /desktop/New Folder.

Thanks for the help to identify the problem.
