I have a rather peculiar, at least to me, event occurring on my machine. I am on an HP Pavilion DV4000 running XP Sp2. I use both IE6 and Firefox browsers. On my last defrag I encountered a message which informed me that not all files could be defragged. My available disk space is 89%. I ran a PCPitstop scan which informed me that I had one file which was in 714 fragments, it was listed as, C:\001000C.CI 46.50MB I Googled the object which returned no replies. So I attempted to do a search on my machine for the file. I included hidden files, etc. About fifteen seconds into the search my desktop reset all of the icons as if booting up. My search box disappeared and all was if I had never initiated a search. Several further attempts to search for the file resulted in the same action. I am having no real problems with my machine other than Explorer will hang on occasion but Task Manager never fails to fix that. I have run the standard cleaners, AVG, both Virus and Spyware, Spybot, CCleaner, Windows Defender and I have used Both Eusing Registry Cleaner and Regsoft's. I guess my curiosity is peaked because I've come across something that isn't "Googleable", and the odd action when I try to search my machine for the little bugger. Thanks to anyone who can just shed a little light on this for me.
