    Deleting Zero Byte Executables

    Locked

    by ticker ·

    Recently I came up with a problem when someone would create a new text file, rename it to an exe and run it.

    Of course, it wouldn’t do anything but it would become annoying since it can’t seemto be modified/removed even after a reboot. I remember using Norton’s to quarenteen it and delete it a while back, but I was wondering if there was a way to use the op system that created them in removing them.

      Login as the Administrator and Take Ownership of the file and then delete it.

        The only account on the machines is an admin level account, not the original, I’m going to put the original admin account back in–if that doesn’t work I’ll ghost the machines and lock new files out so this doesn’t happen again.

        Thanks!
