It does sound very much like a browser-generated folder but could be just about anything. When you right-click it and go to Properties does that give any clues as to what is generating it?
I don't see such a folder on my 7 OS (or Vista or 8.1 for that matter).
You could try some more anti-malware tools, such as Stinger and Malwarebytes Free, see the last link in my signature below.
It might be of help to ask in this forum: http://www.sevenforums.com/ maybe in the Browsers and Mail section.
No, there is absolutley nothing. Just a date when it was created, which is the same date after I delete it and it comes back.
Here's a copy of an answer I posted at Windows 7 Forums after someone asked me if I tried deleting the folder in Safe Mode...
"Yes, I booted to safe mode and deleted the folder. I rebooted into safe mode and the folder was not there. However, when I rebooted to normal mode the folder came back. I deleted the folder again and ran msconfig and booted again thinking it may be in some start up program, but it still came back. I am thinking maybe something in the services that are running. I ran every scan I could find in safe mode and they all find nothing. The weird thing is, the folder is named "history" without a capital "H". All other folders have 1st letters capitalized."
I am at my wits end and I am ready to just restore my computer to factory. There has to be something at start up or boot time that creates this folder. If this folder is safe, then I can mark it as hidden and never have to look at it again...
I found it! .Bing Desktop! Promptly deleted it and no more mystery folder.
Thanx for your input.

I avoid all things Bing so that's why I didn't know. Glad it's OK now.
Thanks for this info..
Now I am glad I have always (Hidden) the Bing updates, and never installed.
