On my desktop, I have two files: they are called CAK1QRI7. and CAK1QRI7..
I think they were created when I had my fresh Windows copy installed with no antivirus and firewall software and some spyware prog created them. The problem is, I am unable to delete them: they are recognized as 0-byte files and when I try to erase them Windows tells me that they doesn't exist. By reading some articles, I know they have invalid filenames and so they aren't recognized as valid files. To delete them I may either use another operating system which allows such filenames (but I have only Windoze) or using a sector editor to find the 'bad' sectors and fill them with zero's. Where can I find one ? Do you know any other ways to stop them from polluting my desktop ? :bigsmile:
