    Hi guys,

    Kind of got the feeling that I may have some sort of virus. I awoke my laptop up from hybernation and there was this save window saying the c:\users\admin\appdata\roaming\macromedia\flash player...\settings.sol folder doesn't exist. The file may have been moved or deleted. Do you want to create it? The file was settings.sol and to be created in the flashplayer folder someplace in a temp folder I guess. I created a screen capture actually. It's saved in a .doc file.

    Any ideas why someone would be planting a file on my laptop that I guess would be flashplayer cache of some sort?
