    These files are in my C: Documents and Settings folder;
    ntuser.dat.log
    ntuser.dat
    ntuser.ini

    they cannot be accessed

    I am assuming these are legit windows files, am I right?

    Thanks

    did you do an upgrade from a previous nt version of windows?
    are you running xp?
    did you do a clean install of windows xp?
    have you run a browser hijack application, a session of spy bot?

    Nothing to worry about. It's not malware. We all have it. Your user account settings are stored in that file. [​IMG]
