Files hidden on server. Weird

Discussion in 'Server Security' started by Philip R. Eaton, Jun 18, 2004.

  1. I am currently running Windows 2000 Back Office server. This server is
    running Exchange 2000, SQL Server 2000 and IIS. I run Norton Corporate
    Anti-virus software on it. I am current on Service Packs and I think I am
    current on patches. Here is the problem.

    When using Windows Explorer to look for files, they seem to be missing. Ex.
    Any file that starts with "Default" in a root web seems to be missing. One
    of the files needed to run the antivirus software seems to be missing. There
    are probably others that I don't know about. I have set the options to show
    hidden files and also system files. If I boot up in safe mode, it is the

    If I use Windows Explorer from another computer to view the server across
    the network, all of the files are there. I have scanned the system using
    other virus software but cannot find anything. I have also searched for
    spyware. I do not know where in Windows these files can be filtered out.

    Any help is appreciated,
