    This thread was posted awhile back,

    "i think i got this virus, it adds a new 0 kb file to my exe files with the same same
    and this $$$ebpebpebpebp$$$ extension
    my norton antivirus doesnt work anymore
    and when i try to delete any file rightclickin the mouse my computer shut down
    can you help me please?"

    Well here is the answer, a bit late but here it is:

    I had the same thing happen to me. The problem lies in Encrypted Briefcase. If you uninstall it it then manually delete those $$$ebpebpebpebp$$$ files all should be well.
