    My Laptop running win2k is behaving very strangely ... all files with
    a filename starting with "sound*" are hidden. They are invisible to
    the "dir" command and the explorer, but they are still there. The same
    happens to directories named sound*. I haven't found anybody who has
    encountered this before. Is this possibly a virus?

    it's possible that it's death rays from mars, but who knows...

    generally it's not possible to diagnose a virus problem by symptoms
    and/or filenames... if you think you have a virus, scan your drive...
    if you think you have a virus your scanner can't detect, try a
    different scanner or send a suspect file to your anti-virus developer
    for analysis...
