    anyone know what the files are that have the follow name

    DG1__DS_DIR_HDR


    I have found several (in the hundreds) in various directories and sub_directories

    Have you scanned the files/the pc (before or after you deleted the files)?

    Why did you delete them before you knew if they were important or not?

    Seem to have to do with music/file sharing:

    Putting 'DG1__DS_DIR_HDR' into a Google search also points a lot to websites 'themecraft.net' and 'pervaya.com', the latter of which Firefox says may not be a 'safe' site.

    My first question, what have you installed lately on your system? A game, some sort of "theme" software? Has your security software given off any warnings? What kind of files are these, .txt, .exe, what?

    thanks everyone for the info.

    To answer why I deleted the files, I noticed that the files appeared on a certain date when it seemed to coincide with a date when i tried to read a dvd.

    So this issue is closed
