    It's amazing he could have that many files infected, quarantined and deleted and not have it affect any critical system files. But most of the infected files were probably hit by the same virus, too bad he didn't tell what it was.

    Wow how did the PC even run? :eek: :eek: :eek:

    Would a virus that effects say your .jpg images make a count of one or one for each .jpg file?

    I think that's probably what it was Hewey, If it was corrupting that many exe's he'd be crying more tears.

    Thanks Rollin' Rog :)

    What ever it is still a very big lost. I think if they were images I would burn them to a CD and maybe at a later date there would be a fix so you could get them back.
