  1. Hi,
    I am not sure if this is the right place to put my issue, but I give it a shot. I had my USB pen pluged in computer, turned it on and some "bootex" check converted some of my file folders into 32kb files, they are not folders anymore and I cannot open them by anything. Does anybody know how to convert "file" back to "file folder" or at least get my data from it? I need help as soon as possible.

    Thanks

    That is part of an evil investation.
    Take a look at this, http://www.threatexpert.com/files/bootex.exe.html
    Then search other places with a Gurgle search for Bootex infestation or Bootex by itself. There are supposedly ways to fix it using standard antivirus and antispyware programs, but I have not seen it so do not know.
