I've just encountered a strange problem & I'm hoping someone can shed some light on the issue. In the last couple of days my computer will freeze when I go to open certain folders on my HD. 2 of the offending folders have photos from the net & the other has small mpeg clips also from the net.
The folders open OK but then the computer just freezes & I have to Ctrl, Alt,Del to close the folder. I've never encountered this before and even stranger is I deleted these folders and copied them from a backup disc I'd made & same problem happened.
Just wondering does it sound like a virus or some problem with the harddrive? I also defragged & problem remained & scanned the folders & no viruses showed. Thanks in advance to anyone that could help.
