I've been getting a Help Assistant folder on my computer in Documents & Settings. It copies all of my files. I have been deleting it every day for the past couple of weeks since my anti-virus provider cannot solve this problem (so far).
This folder first appeared on January 23, but I did not notice it until April. On Startup, a boot screen shows up, but Windows then loads by itself. This is part of the Help Assistant problem. It has even uninstalled my firewall and I had to reinstall it. It copies my files and then makes copies of the copies, but changes the first two letters of the file name to "~$".
Any ideas? Thanks.
