www.sysinternals.com  has two tool named process explorer and filemon.
They can show what processes do what to which files. Copy in a bunch of 
jpgs, observe which process deletes them, find the executable with process 
explorer, then use PE to kill it. And remember to keep a copy of it (the 
nastyware) for later analysis.

Don't be too surprised if it's antivirus (sigh). Some of the less 
intelligent ones sometimes are a little too 'smart'. Like deleting all 
zipfiles with certain names, or deleting gifs with a certain size, or 
'protecting' the machine against a JPG decoder bug.
