Helping people with computers... one answer at a time.
Read the article that everyone's commenting on.
2 days ago Ad Aware found I had a Win.32 Trojan Downloader on my PC, AVG anti virus did not show it. I decided to see if I could find the source of this Trojan, and why it didn't show on AVG.
Yes, you guessed it, the trojan was in a file in C:\DOCUME~1.
Eventually I gave up looking for the Trojan, and deleted it with Ad Aware. I did all the usual, cleaned out my machine, then checked to ensure my machine was clear.
I did find the source of the Trojan, my grandson was swapping photos with a friend, and the Trojan was sitting in a .zip file on my desktop.
How do I find Program.exe. Many of my emails with graphics say they cannot open because they cannot find Program.exe. I can find it either. Where is it? Thanks
its documents and settings on local disk.
The reason you can't delete C:\Docume~1 is because it's a system folder. It's the folder that user accounts are stored: C:\Documents and Settings\
Windows XP sometimes addresses it as Docume~1 to avoid the spaces in the file name.
I have a 'C:\DOCUME~1 issue myself. I swear its nowhere to be found.
I downloaded a document from my email--proposal 25
and forgot this when I saved and closed word.
So I opened the desktop version and realized it did not have the modified changes from 1/21, so in File box is saw proposal 25 saved with the path C:\DOCUME~ ...proposal 25. I found this blog, read the article and have searched my own local disk and done computer file searches, but it only finds my original desktop version. I modified the dates just for 1/21 and no document shows up. I didn't not save the desktop version when I opened it either, in case I could recover yesterday's file. Now I am desperate, any advice?
alright so i had this keylogger program on my computer and it says it cannont be found. well i uninstalled it and everytime my cp starts up it say mpk.exe cannont run at this time and it gives me send error report and ect. i clicked on send error report and it says it cant because all of the sending information is 000000. so i clicked on technical support and it gave me the name of this file:
the 44be_ is nowhere in the folder. how can i get this messege to stop when i start up? Could this file be showing the messege?
This is a very good article, very well written and easy to understand. Thanks
Thanks a bunch!
Very well written and understood everything
Thanks again leo!
C:\DOCUME~1\MyName\LOCALS~1\Temp and C:\PROGRA~1\
i do not agree that they are the same as C:\Documents and Settings\MyName\Local Settings\Temp
and c:\programs\ in the registry they are listed both ways and they are not related
I've had an error message that read c|docume~1/admin~1\wer2bee.dir00\mini030209-01.dmp
and then it's dump me out and reboot the machine time. Any ideas?
