    Would you please upload screenshots directly to the site as images? That'd be a lot more trustable and convenient.

    Yeah, there's no reason to have screenshots in a RAR. Either attach them directly to the thread or upload them to Imgur and embed them please.

    Based on what you said though it looks like you have some sort of rogue config file that's doing something, probably got it from a server or something.

    here is all of the screenshot (don't know we could do that)

    they are floating around randomly, they never go outside the skybox, and the line seems to follow the direction they are going before stoping

    Oh I've seen these when I wrote a command, something about hair. It's just there for testing purposes as far as I know, and should be removed upon disconnecting (it's a client thing).

    Exactly. I remember myself messing around with the commands, and something hair-including in a command drew things like these.

    They are caused by createhairball. As @iiboharz said, a server might have downloaded a config file onto your computer that executes this command. Try clearing your Team Fortress 2/tf/downloads folder and see if it still happens.
