Could the files be compressed? Or possibly the whole hard drive?

I assume we are talking about the text in Windows Explorer? For folders? For files? Is it ALL text or only some?

Sounds like you have "View Desktop as Web Page" set in your desktop settings. And "Single-click" to open icons for your folder settings.

What version of Windows are you running?
