    Hi Everyone,
    Runnning Win2000 pro!
    Have a question to see if anybody has seen this before. In my C:\winnt directory I have a file named .file_store_32 it has ten files in it. they will open in notepad but they are jibberish. I think it is an entry from a online store of some kind.My teens say they have not signed up for anything ( Ya Right!!) Any insite would be appreciated. It does not contain virus and is as far as i know not spyware (spybot says its clean). It is not causing any problems at all but just curious. I would like to lose it if I can. I hate things in my system that I dont know anything about.

    Thank You!!

    Put the whole directory in the recycle bin for a week or two. If no problems turn up, then Empty recycle bin. Otherwise you can restore.
