    TDS-3 scan results in an 'NTFS Alternative Data Stream' located in C:\Documents and Settings\All Users\Documents\My Pictures\Sample Pictures\thumbs.db:encryptable I have read Gavin's and Pilli's reply to other stream thread and although size is showing as 0bytes which I need not worry about the file type is .exe.

    I scanned yesterday and this was not around - I have not opened any picture files since then.

    I'm just after confirmation that I can delete this file - and which method is best...right click TDS alarm line and 'delete stream and host'?

    Hi 0 Bytes = Nothing to worry about :) Thumbs.db is a normal file to do with image tracking etc, within windows and O bytes you can safely delete it but it will probably return again ;)
