missing script files

by chumbari / March 14, 2007 11:44 AM PDT

Good day to everyone!

I just wanted to ask help regarding my two pcs strucked with problems. Each time I double-click the shortcut icon for a certain drive at desktop or at system tray, it doesn't open the drive but rather a message appears stating that " cannot find script file "d:\f56159"." I think that the file needed for that shortcut is corrupted. Could this be a result of a virus attack? How could I restore that file so that the shortcut will work again?

antivirus and firewall

I use IE but not using firewall because my pcs are already connected to a server.It is a company pc. I use an open source antivirus (AVG antivirus and AVG Anti-spyware) when the problem came out. I later installed a Norton Antivirus Corporate edition and Ad-Aware but the problem still persist.

You can head to our Security Forum to ask if one can go without but I'll write no since today's pests love to exploit any hole we allow.

The move to Norton does not cure this issue. The security forum has some ongoing discussions about cause and cure.
