Hi All
I have a very intriguing problem (to say the least)
I have a server runiing Windows 2003 Standard Edition
I have some backup software installed on it..other than Eset and the backup software thats about it as far as software is concerned.
Here is the kicker..There is a subfolder within the installation folder of the backup software called \webapps
Within this \webapps folder there are 3 subfolders...as below

Every day at 9:45am precisely..the ROOT folder disappears from the server..i have seen it literally delete/disappear right before my eyes at exactly 9:45am
In addition the time date/time stamp modified on the other 2 folders also change to 9:45am too
i am convinced its a virus..Eset found the Conficker worm and deleted it..there has been no other symptoms other than what i described above and ESet has not found anything else.
I have disabled Task scheduler on the server but that has had no effect...
Any help would be appreciated..

It sounds more like the files are being affected by a time synchronization application.
