New Mysterious Folder

By jgreer ·
I have some Windows NT 4.0 Svc Pack 6a systems that now contain a folder called INCENERATE. The systems will not let me view the contents or remove them even though I am a Network Admin. Has anyone seen this before? If so, do you know what it is and how I remove it?

Can you get to the folder as the PC administrator? Can you get to the security tab and if necessary change the owner?

That's the incorrect spelling for incinerate - which would make me suspiscious of a virus or malware.

You can use the DOS 'Attrib' command to view or change the System, Read-Only and Hidden attributes. That may allow you to view or delete the folder contents.
