I've now figured out that 5% of any movie i download off the internet is
a fake movie file that consists of a file size arround 700mb's and when
movie file is opened the movie player of any type Frezees then not to long
after Windows Explorer starts to use all CPU Resources.

These files are 100% not movie files, but can not figure out what there
perpose is or if they are infected and with what?


Can anyone shed light on this situation.

Howdy and welcome to G2G:

eMule but the problems start after the video player has been
stoped via TaskManager because it was frozen.. But its on
WinXP and these files have to be infected with something
and they are undectiable.
