Topic - Why are there 63,000 items in the root folder?

stp - on 12 Sep 2012
My son's Win 7 laptop was running slow so I had a look at it.

Checking the root folder revealed more than 63,000 items!!! Holy Moly!! All small files and folders. The partition is only 100gb and there's still plenty of free space.

Not sure how that happened, I'm guessing a virus of some sort although not sure what the point would be, just a prank? He also has Avast which is usually pretty good.

Anyone heard or seen of anything like this before? Any suggestions apart from the obvious delete and virus scan the system?
