|I did a search for a bunch of video clips I made and noticed that there appears to be some sort of file showing up in My Computer. Screenshot here: http://img214.imagevenue.com/img.ph... The red icon is the one I made for avi files, the Internet icon files are the ones I don't understand. I've never seen this before now.|
Fearing some sort of virus/spyware, I've scanned my drives with just about every scanner I can think of (MS Malicious Removal Tool, AVG, Kaspersky Online, Malwarebytes, etc.) Ran chkdsk on all drives in case it was hardware related and that came up clean. I also used Speccy to get SMART data, again showing no issues.
There are only 6 titles mirroring the actual avi files. That's six out of 150 or so. They don't have a file size, no date or any properties. And there isn't anything showing up in My Computer, even with hidden files showing. Has anyone seen this happen or know why these "files" are showing up?
More details upon request.
If you're not cynical, you're not paying attention
