every so often, a file appears in various folders on my pc. It is called PPThumbs.ptn. Saw one last night, did a search on 'em, and hundreds appeared! WHAT are they, and where do they 'come' from? Same with another I've just found, SearchDBDT. Any ideas?

PPThumbs.ptn files are created by Scansoft's program called Paperport, to hold "thumbnail" images. You can delete them but they will appear again when you run the program.SearchDBT. is also Paperport.
