Mystery file

  ljh2805 13:04 07 Apr 2004

I keep getting an unknown folder appearing in "my documents"
The folder contains an empty file named as "kdx"
I have no idea what it is or where it came from and I continue to delete it, but it keeps reappearing after I boot up.
Could this be some sort of virus, or hacker.

Could be spy ware there is a program called Hex kdx i think a bit like messenger but if you installed it you would know.The folder could be a log file of chats and things and because you havent used it its empty.Im by no means 100% about this just an idea.

has this file got an extension?

Thanks for the responses,
Looking at the program  ÑÌÇKÑÂMË said about, it looks like it could be the one, but I have never installed it.
In answer to Xevious, no it has no extension

what file type does it show as? does it say it's an application? if that's the case it should have an extension of .exe

else look in the folder in DOS mode and that'll show what it is too...

but this may be irrelevant of course but it may help in finding exactly what this file is...?

just shows as "file folder" and in properties it says "read only"
How do I look in DOS mode?
