    Huge, Gigantic, Unspecified Drives?

    Hey all,

    Got a call form a customer today that said "hey , all my drive descriptions have changed? Is someone hacking my computer?"

    Of course this is the way a typical Monday starts around here..haha.

    Anyway, here is a screenshot that he took and sent to me. I do not think this is part of any windows theme, unless they have a new viagra theme I dont know about.

    Has anyone seen this before? Probability of it being a comprimised computer? If it is I plan on having him backup all data and reload his machine.

    Here is the screenshot.

    Thanks for any help!!

    Sounds more like a partition tool for disk management...Acronis or the Windows Disk Management.

    http://www.informationweek.com/showA...leID=180207718 did they install any disk management software lately (Partition Magic), maybe someone downloaded the program and fiddled with the options (like changing drive descriptions)..

    Hehehehe... Open "My Computer". View -> Arrange Icons by -> Total size.

    Arrange Icons by -> Type is the default
