I have had a partition on my main drive "F" that is only 5gb. I have had no files - nothing on this partition at all - just like an unused drive. Today, I open up Windows Explorer and see all these weird looking files. I know cryptography, but I don't see the code here! I know some about computers in general, but I have no idea what this is. I got a screen capture and sized it to the directory listings only and have enclosed it below. Oh...another weird part: this is only a 5gb partition, yet look at the bottom of the screen at what it's showing. Even the individual "files" and "directories" show 1.7gb, 6.7gb, etc......to me, that doesn't make sense. Is there an innocent explanation do you think? Here's the picture. OH! As far as pest control, I run PC-cillin, Trojan Hunter, PestPatrol, AdAware. Any help would be appreciated. Thank you!!!! John If the picture doesn't show up - here's a link: [link]http://www2.eboard.com/eboard/boards/7/94/72/RazDazRR/att-564507/weirddir2.jpg[/link] http://www2.eboard.com/eboard/boards/7/94/72/RazDazRR/att-564507/weirddir2.jpg I'm modifying this message: I can't get the picture - or the link to work. I double checked the link in the post box and it's fine, but once I click it on the board it won't work and I get a 404. I see that it's put a space in the url where I don't show a space when I have it posted in the posting box. OR, I tried it again and it shows a %20. To look at the picture, just take the space or the %20 out. Sorry. Hope somebody has an idea as to what this is!!
