Have you ever used LogMeIn for remote login to your machine? If you haven't, I would sure be curious as to who has been logging into your machine.

but if there is malware in there then pitchharmonics should go to the malware forum, and ask for help.
And I never tried to upload a folder to Jotti, don't know if that would work, I usually suggest people upload files.

uh yeah...but that's not really what you told the user to do is it? the user would have to select EACH AND EVERY file in the folder and scan them one at a time....not something i'd want to do with the amount of files i think they're talking about...why wouldn't you suggest just scanning the folder with their antivirus software? or something like that
he can select folder and scan files in folder
you might wanna start being more detailed with your posts if you're wanting to stick around here

you know that jotti online scanner has multiple scanners
and theres a chance one or more might find some type of malware
and the comment about selecting files was directed at harrythook
how ever he start scanning files with jotti with the files he mentioned in post one
usually you get a welcome when you join a forum not a threat
if you're wanting to stick around here

Scan that folder with your antivirus scanner
if it detects anything wrong with it as far as malwares concern go here and follow the steps to the malware forum

Back to the picture comment, I use facebook, and there are a lot of thumbnail size facebook pictures, some of them have solid grey covering up parts of the picture, some have strange bright yellow blue green with square shapes covering a portion of the pictures, others look normal.
I deleted this folder yesterday right after posting on here. And today got a program to retrieve again. Since then I've noticed that different facebook pictures are being previewed while viewing this folder, as if they'd automatically been added to the folder. Overall I don't remember making this folder, and dont understand how thumbnail size pictures got into the folder from viewing friends on facebook.
