Thread: Malicious Film ?

  1. #1
    Hi ,
    I have downloaded Matrix revolution and when I double click on it it plays about 10 seconds then stops and my system is running at 100 cpu this locks my system I have to reboot to loose cpu . this then happens if I just click on the file ,it seems to be my explorer that is running at 100 cpu I could not delete the file even in safe mode I had to delete the partition with partition magic .I scanned the file and it seemed to be clean of viruses etc.
    Any idea what this is ?

    this happens quite a few times with me and avi's

    normally i can delete the file either using nero or dos, but occasionally, as you've found, the file remains there...

    the way i manage to delete it if this happens is to open nero, end explorer with task manager, delete the file, then restart explorer

    that should have worked, shame you had to delete your partition...

    What do you mean use NERO how? ,I have NERO.
    I did try shutting down explorer then restarting and its ok till I click on the file again.
    If I try to delete it says it is been used.
    I have had these probs before but they normally delete in safe mode.
    Do you think these .avi&#39;s are put out by the film companies to put us off ?

    nero works without using explorer, so if explorer thinks it&#39;s using the file, nero can usually jump in there behind its back and delete the file

    try deleting the file with nero when explorer isn&#39;t running (i.e. shut down explorer and don&#39;t restart it until the file has been deleted) next time this happens

    pretend you&#39;re going to make a cd up, navigate to the file and then just right click and delete it...

    I have just found an entry about this on the microsoft datdbase .
    It seems that in large .avi&#39;s there is an index file and if this has been chopped off using a file splitter or just corrupt then when you click on it in explorer it searches through the whole file for it and when it cant find it it searches again.
    And it takes the lenth of the film to search and runs at 100 cpu freezing your system.
    There is a hotfix for this but it wont be available until the next service pack.
    You can request a download from support but it is in trial stage.
