Hello Good People,

I run, amongst others, a Win2K Advanced server to expose some websites, I am an Apps chap really, rather than sys admin, however, needs must etc.

A few weeks ago I installed foldersize (excellent utility) to support some housekeeping, and with it discovered 23 Gb of recycle bin on my D drive.

It contained a folder called 'GMC' (23Gb in size) which in turn contained a 'Control Panel' which would not reveal any files. I deleted GMC with the delete button, and it became apparent I had been unwittingly hosting lots of pornography (judging by the names of the files). I called in a sys admin friend, he identified a couple of 'iffy' processes which we took down, and removed what he described as 'latch' keys from the registry. Anyway, one week later there is another 2Gb in there and now the GMC folder refuses to allow itself to be deleted. As you can imagine, this is somewhat disturbing. Does anyone have any suggestions as to where I might start to remove, permanently, this parasite? What should I run to give all you good people some useful diagnostics?

Jerry
