As far as I can determine there is no defined filetype using jepg as an extension. It might just be an error, or a re-naming to avoid triggering a filter watching for jpg images. You could try re-naming one as jpg and see if an image editor will open it. Alternatively you could open the file as a binary with a hex editor and see if there are any identifying strings in it, there might be a header with some readable text.

Hi again


Irfan view says these are Power point Files

I`m not infected but the pen drive used to Copy these
Files was having threats like backdoor.win32.spammy.gf,trojan.win32.starter.yy,Win32.sohanad.qr were cleaned from the pen drive..


Is their any chance that the virus/threat could have renamed the file extensions????

Is ACDsee a better option or will Irfanview display it well enough?

I use a paid version of AC/DC and it is a very powerful piece of software. Irfanview should work fine for you. BTW, you might want to read this: http://netpbm.sourceforge.net/doc/ppm.html

Is it really .jepg or is that a typo? The correct extension is .jpeg. If it really is .jepg then you likely have a malware problem.

You can try renaming it. If that doesn't work you'll have to check with a malware specialist. You might also want to check the system out to make sure the malware wasn't transferred to the computer.
