IT IS related to virus infection, you need to scan your PC or do a manual search and delete what you find..

apologies for slow response,had to work. apparantley at least fourteen files are infected with trojans, havnt determined if they are the same type but seem as though they came in via an infected dvd with family photos ,mcafee reports infected files where i store my photos.priority is to rid my laptop of these infections, will try all suggested options and will post again if no joy, i will close this post as resolved altho not really the case, cheers

Whoever passed you the DVD has probably got the same problem!
