PC: HP Pavilion p6230y
OS: Windows 7 (64 bit)
I've noticed a peculiarity lately, and I'm not 100% sure how long it's been going on nor whether it's normal or not. Part of me thinks it's a normal feature of Windows 7 that I've always experienced... another part of me doubts this since I've never looked into it before and am usually fairly vigilant to similar anomalies.
When I save JPG files, it gives me the standard pop-up box to navigate to the folder I want, as well as the standard text boxes at the bottom of the pop-up that allow me to fill in my "Filename" and choose a "Save as type". What struck me as peculiar was that under "Save as type" it automatically chooses "HPTSMSMVP.JPG" with "All files" being the only other option. I decided to search Google for the "HPTSMSMVP" term, and received almost no explanation except for a couple random forums citing problems with ransomware and troublesome file encryption/errors linked to the "HPTSMSMVP" image/filetype tag.
I've had no real problems with images otherwise, AFAIK, but I prefer to be on the safe side.
So, is this normal or do I have a problem on my hands?
Thanks, in advance, for any help!!!
