Thread: Strange Folder

    I noticed yesterday that I was sharing about 100 more files than usual... wondering where all these files came from and where they were, I checked my list of shared folders.

    It turns out that they were all in a folder called WINDOWS/User32. They were all small executables (500k to 1.5mb). I never downloaded any of them. They seemed to be really random files.. something from Yahoo.. a couple cracks for some games I don't even have... something from ICQ, ect.

    I unshared the folder, but when i rebooted today, it was shared again. So I deleted all the files, and unshared it again.

    Any idea why Kazaa would keep picking this folder to share even though I clicked it off?

    places a folder in windows folder with a buncha dead files in it either blank mp3s or some other shit
    use avg to scan for it it should find it

    its an early attempt by the riaa to bog down the networks by forcing you to share dead files
