Does it only happen when you boot the computer, or can you have it up and running for days, and each day or so a "New Folder" will be created?

What about Mizzle's question about checking your scheduled tasks? I'm sure you didn't intentionally schedule such a task but it's worth looking if there's one set for some reason.

Some guy found out a Bluetooth service was doing it on his computer. Make sure you don't have any applications set to create that folder when receiving files or downloading files - i.e. I've got a firefox extension called DownThemAll, and that's set to create a new folder every time I download any files using this extension.
