My Computer icon changes names

I have a weird problem with XP Pro whereby the My Computer icon on the
desktop and start menu changes names on reboot and sometimes when the
computer is in use, the latest being 'bnb0140'. This is not the computer
name and no reference to the names can be found on the system. I checked
MS's KB and nothing found. No viruses found either. Has anyone else
experienced this or heard about it before?

I.m running windows ME and for some reason unknown the icons associated with
various files changed, but not the actual file association. I went to
Control Panel/Folder Options/File Types and for every icon that looked wrong
hit the 'advanced' option. As long as the 'programme opens with' is correct,
hit ok and the correct icon will be displayed. I have had no problems since
