    Hi All,

    I am facing the exact problems as described in
    http://www.mcse.ms/message715102.html.
    On the left pane, sometimes I get many icons (used to display the files
    with unknown extensions). There is no problem with the virus or
    spyware. I checked for all these.
    Please help me for this unusual issue.

    Thnaks in Advance.

    That's from a 20 month old thread on this newsgroup.

    Getting information out of that guy was like pulling teeth too.

    You might have better luck with a different newsgroup, say
    microsoft.public.windowsxp.basic or the equivalent microsoft.public.*
    newsgroup for whatever operating system you have. And give the Microsoft
    Knowledge Base a try.

    Something in your system is misbehaving, probably not malware.

    Thanks all for the info.
    I am using Windows XP SP2.
    Sometimes after copy/paste or cut paste operation of files/folders in
    Windows explorer, I get the icon which is used for unknown file
    extension in left pane. Sometimes, i get the desktop icon 5-6 times in
    the left pane and after that whatever i click nothing works. I need to
    close the explorer and restart again.

    I am sure it has nothing to do with any adware/malware/virus.
    If you need more info, please let me know.
    Also, is there a way I can attach the screen shot of the issue so that
    it may help you to know the issue better.

    Thaks in advance for your help/suggestions
