    Phantom files

    I have been finding files on my Dell XPS8900 in the Documents folder that are not of my creation. They seem to have a pattern: all are at the beginning or end of the alphabetical list of files(folders begin with letters A or Z and always have a number at the end). Example: Zscans164. They have several various file types such as Word and JPG files. The file names are odd. I deleted them all a few days ago and ran a Malwarebytes scan and Kapersky AV scan with no malware detected. Now new ones are popping up daily with the same odd pattern. There is nobody else using my PC. I am baffled. They don't appear to be harmful. It almost seems that I have a type of malware but cannot detect it. I have no other issues with this PC. I have attached an example.

    Desktop shortcuts moving

    Thank for your reply Y but auto arrange has not been checked. They will stay where I put them for a week or two and then they all go left. Not a huge problem but very annoying
  3. I have about 30 shortcuts set up on my desktop in 4 quadrants by category. On occasion they all move without any action on my part. They always go to the left top to bottom and pretty much alphabetical. Very annoying to move them back. I have no clue why this happens. Any ideas?
