Re-appearing folder

I have a folder that keeps re-appearing on start up, after I have deleted it. I can re-name it, move it, and delete it, and according to my unblocker software it is not linked to anything. It is not causing me a problem but it is really annoying to have this empty rogue folder keep re-appearing every time I turn my machine on. Can anybody help? Please!

Does it say what it is? Skype for example will create such folders even if they have been deleted previously.

It is just a file folder that I created in my Documents - that's what makes this so strange!

Try booting in safe mode and delete it then, also check My Documents in the All Users folder and Administrators folder to see if it’s in one of those. I had the same problem a few years ago, and it kept re-appearing until I did as above. I hope this helps.
