And Does Renaming The File Fix the Problem?
by Grif Thomas Forum moderator / March 10, 2013 3:39 AM PDT

Change the file name from .jpg_File to simply Filename.jpg. Same with the .zip files. Of course, if the virus corrupted those files, then renaming them may not help. You'll need to use your backups to recover those particular files.

Hope this helps.

Thanks Grif for replay
It's looks like issue with windows explorer because when I brows the file with 7zip it show all files in correct extension ..

I'm think on reformat my PC again just in case if their is a virus doing all that
