Hello

I use Windows XP SP3

Well I connected my usb to the flash driver and then I used Norton Antivirus to analize the unit. It deleted 5 virus, I tought that was fine but when i opened my C) and D) disk alot of hidden items appeared. and together with a Recycle carpet in both disks.

About this file "Pagefile.sys" this is one of the files that appeared, i wanted to delete it manualy but it says that is being used by another person.
I dont know if it is the source of the problem.
I used the norton antivirus to scan them but it didnt delete them =(. Hope u can help me, I dont want to format my pc.

Edit:
I read that pagefile.sys is a normal archive haha. But I have a problem with those carpets "recycler"
They contains like 3 "S-1-5-21-725345543-606747145-343818398-500" files.

Thx.
Alejandro.

Pagefile.sys is a legitimate file on Windows. It is where files go once RAM is all used up.

You will have to do a System Repair via Recovery or Install Disk.

Do you have access to a Windows XP CD, and also what kind of computer is this? Is it a OEM build like Dell, Gateway, HP, or a custom home built box?
