    max,

    sounds like your system has been infected indeed. It's impossible to find out what has caused this; could have been a trojan etc. indeed.

    As for protection: apart from practicing safe hex, please post if - and what sort of defensive software is installed.

    regards.

    paul

    You may not have lost any data, depending on you operating system. Perhaps an unformat is available.
