Specs: Windows 7, Pentium 4, 512mg
I'm running Microsoft Office 2010. One day I had Outlook Mail open, when all of a sudden up popped a calendar reminder that I DIDN'T PUT THERE--someone else did! It said some hokey thing like "Dear Friend, don't forget meeting next week," and kept popping up until I dismissed it like any other reminder. A few weeks later a similar one appeared. I contacted Microsoft and the tech I chatted with was amazed and said she'd have to look further into that because she had no idea what was going on....then I never heard anything again. Is that weird or what?

✔ Best Answer
"she had no idea what was going on"
Without running some special programs, there is no way of knowing.

1: Download & run Unhide
To run Unhide, simply download it to your desktop and then double-click on the Unhide icon. The program will open a black box and start making the files on your fixed disks visible again. Please note, that this program will not unhide removable drives like flash cards and usb drives as the FakeHDD rogues do not target these types of drives. Once it has finished, the program will display a Windows alert stating that your files have been restored. You should then reboot your computer for all of the settings to go into effect.
Copy & Paste the contents of the log. Let me know if it doesn't produce a log please.

2: Reboot

3: Run RogueKiller
