Solid works creating a new folder every time a file is opened

One of our workstations has an issue where whenever it opens a Solid Works file, it automatically creates a folder in the root directory of our CAD drive.  The folder is named "swx00000" (the 0's being a different numbers every time).  The folder usually just contains and empty folder named "DWG".  We have just deleted the automatically created folders in the past because they cause issues organizationally, but now this workstation has been updated from Windows 7 to 10, and from Solidworks 2015 to 2016 and the problem still persists.  Any ideas what is causing it and how to stop it from doing that? Thanks!
