Thread: Window Forensics: Have I been hacked?

    Tidal,

    In windows world, almost every file has an extension which is the . and the last 3 letters. That extension is then associated with a particular program that is installed on your machine. If you double click on a file or try to run a file, that OS checks to see if there is a program associated with the extension of the file you just clicked. If there is, it runs the program that corresponds to the extension. On the other hand, if there is no program associated with the files extension, windows will ask what you would like to do with that file.

    As for learning about the extensions and what they are for, that really just comes with experience and poking around.

    I think a real good place to learn about file extentions is to open up explorer on your computer click on "tools" => select "folder options" => and click the tab for "file types". that about says it all
    Bukhari:V3B48N826 “The Prophet said, ‘Isn’t the witness of a woman equal to half of that of a man?’ The women said, ‘Yes.’ He said, ‘This is because of the deficiency of a woman’s mind.’”

    Thanks all for the tips. Definately says it all in file types. Only problem was
    finding windows explorer hiding from me in Accessories, learning something
    new everyday.
