I'm back on Linux again... Because it seems that my Windows install got rooted. I don't understand how it happens. I surf safely, never use pirated software, use HIPS and sandboxing and a good firewall... And I don't get a single bad notification from anything in my security setup. Yet when I do a normal sweep for junk files with Glary Utilities, what do I find but two "zero-byte" driver files with random names that can't be deleted? It's not another infected machine on the home network. I'm pretty sure none of my CDs nor my USB stick are infected, nor the wireless at work... But either I am seeing things or something is slipping past my guard, even while others surf around the dark parts of the web with no more protection than XP firewall and an AV and come out unscathed. Could it just be my lack of knowledge of Windows? Does XP normally produce tiny randomly-named driver files out of nowhere? Is this a PEBKAC situation? Or is there something sinister going on here?
