A family member computer was recently attacked by a virus which has been dealt with. While inspecting the system, I came across two files: nvModes.001 and nvModes.dat.
An internet search shows mixed reviews. Is this a virus or is it not? On the infected system, these files were located in C:\ProgramData. I renamed these files and after the next restart, these two 'missing' files were re-added. Several sites assumed that since it starts with nv that it might be associated with nvidia; however, I could not locate anything on their site.
Does anyone know if these are harmful files and if they are, how do I get rid of them.
If at first you don't succeed, then sky diving wasn't meant for you!
