Hey guys i have a serious problem. My hard drive has 2 partition C and D. C is where all the application is and D is where i keep all my songs and movies.
Just recently, when i tried to access my D drive, to my surprise there was only 1 folder. A KDB folder. Inside this folder there are a files with .box and .bix. All my songs were no where to be seen.

I tried scanning my pc for virus but nothing. The only results i got from AVG is 2 files changed::shell 32 (C:Windows/system32/shell32.dll) and host (C:Windows/system32/drivers/etc/hosts).

My question is ..Is this KDB folder a virus??

How do i get back my old files???

If i format my C drive, will my D drives files magically come back???

Any advise is much appreciated. Thanks in advance.................

Hi is this an Xp or a Vista system?
Have just recently installed or updated something? you may need to remove it and do it again.

Have you tried using Windows System Restore to a point before this occurred?

Hello again, First a full format will remove everything, a repair install should not erase the files. Now I'm not certain that this would magically restore them either. I actually feel that this is not a malware issue. KDB may be some Kernel Debugger or something. Not my area.
Is this an XP machine,as I can move this topic to the proper forum for others more adept at this to see.

My pc is running on XP. If you say that this KDB folder is a Kernel Debugging thing, but why is the size of this KDB folder the same as my music folder which is 40 GB. Advise needed.........

Hello siewpao,

I see that you have posted an HJT log here: http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/forums/t/137773/shell32dll-file-changed/ DO NOT make any further changes to your computer: deleting files, editing the registry, using special fix tools, installing or uninstalling software etc. as this will make it more difficult for the HJT team to help you.

Please be patient as the HJT team is EXTREMELY busy. DO NOT bump your log as the team may think that someone is already helping you. If you have not had a response by, let's say, April 8 add a response to the five days no response topic and paste in the link to your thread.

To avoid confusion, I am closing this topic. Good luck with your log.
