ok. in the c: root directory it has created 46 folders with names like 3eee8d8099239accfad325ff3482ba

laptop is new about 2 weeks old and has done it ever since i got it.

inside the folders are a single text file with a name like msxml4-KB927978-enu

inside the text file starts off by saying erbose logging started: 25/11/2006 22:41:40 Build type: SHIP UNICODE 3.01.4000.2435 Calling process: C:\WINDOWS\system32\msiexec.exe ===

and then alot of random crap.

A recovery partition would be where you recover vital stuff from when your other stuff is teh gone... and your computer is keeping a log of something... maybe it's each time someone from ebaums enters your computer after we found the secret gateway and posted it in Extremium, hah!:D
