TECH Q AND A: Despite deletion, .jpg files are multiplying

Published 07/24/2009, McClatchy Newspapers

Question: When I try to delete .jpg files on my Windows XP system, I also get hundreds of copies made of other .jpg files. I have run McAfee antivirus scans and Microsoft's download to find viruses and both come out clean.
