Hello,

Heard that anything with a .ecc extension is a crypto virus, so i did a search.
Found over a thousand of them !

So I tried deleting them, to the Recyle Bin.

They don't show up there, at all.

In Agent Ransack, they now seem to come up as:

$Recycle.bin\lots of numbers

What is the $ ?
Why can't I delete them ?

Why don't they show in the Recycle bin; at least for the ones that "seem to" have been deleted ?
Agent Ransack still shows them all, though, but with many now as the $Recycle bin
How can I get rid of them all ?

What should I do, please ?

My old W7 got corrupted with this, so am very, very worried.

Using BitDefender, but it apparently found nothing
Also ran that MS Malware Tool, but it also found nothing

Thanks,
Bob
