Hi

For some very strange reason the folders Volume System Information and RECYCLER have appeared on both my two external hard drives.

They look shaded so I guess they are hidden files.

Before I go to the extent of bothering you with my logs can someone tell me if its a virus or not, and I need to be worried?

Thanks

Windows creates hidden Recycle bin and System Restore directories on all drives. Thats normal.

However, your resycled/boot.com error IS a virus.

I'm having a similar kind of problem and here it goes:

In all the disk partitions, there used to be a folder for RECYCLE BIN......
which is denoted as $RECYCLE.BIN right????This is an os folder and is hidden by default.

The actual problem is another folder RECYCLER(must be a malware) appears even when hide hidden folder option is applied. However, RECYCLER is also found in all disk partitions. In the RECYCLER folder, there seems to be an application S-0-0-75-100020897-100014327-100022846-4120.com
which is shown when Show OS files option is selected......
When I delete the folder it says, it's unsafe to delete a system file........

Are you sure this is a system file or some kind of malware????
Need help!!!
