picture.jpg.vbs

!!! PLEASE HELP !!!

Resenty more and more (now all) of my pictures(.jpg) have dissapeard. Windows just renames them & puts a .vbs in front of them (ex: aa.jpg -> aa.jpg.vbs) & they become 11.8kB large & renaming them dose NOT help.

Are they lost FOREVER ???
Can i recover them ???
How can i prevent this ???
Is it win2000 or the harddisc ???

(my *.mp3 files get that way too but the original dont get delited. I just get a copy *.mp3.vbs in the same catalog)

  1. DO A VIRUS CHECK! Those are visual basic script files. I'm not sure what you did, perhaps download and execute some file, but scan for viruses first. There's a free web-based one at the Norton/Symmantec website:

    If it detects nothing, post back.

  2. Sounds like the badtrans.B virus.

    You are a tard for getting it. You are suffering enough having to deal with it so I won't go on...
  3. From reading the details on the W32.Badtrans.B@mm virus, it doesn't seem like it's that one, because it's adding .pif and .scr extensions, not .vbs.
