Greetings All, Today while doing a clean up on my system I started roaming around looking for things that didn't appear to be normal. Upon stepping into my windows/system32 folder i came across something that not only looked abnormal but to me was just plain freaky. MANY of the system files have multiple consecutively numbered copies. I have taken a screen shot and will post it with this post. I am also pasting a basic copy of my dxdiag results to show my system stats to better assist with any needed information. ------------------ System Information ------------------ Time of this report: 1/8/2009, 11:34:52 Machine name: TWISTEDFISH Operating System: Windows XP Home Edition (5.1, Build 2600) Service Pack 3 (2600.xpsp_sp3_gdr.080814-1236) Language: English (Regional Setting: English) System Manufacturer: Dell Inc.
