icon = .\mxoicon3.ico

That's all... there is an icon called "mxoicon3" as well. Both claim they were last modified in Feb 2006, if that helps at all.

I just realised it's not showing an extension, I must've hallucinated the .inf extension. Most of my files don't have extensions, and I have a vague memory of some setting to hide common file types, so I won't worry about it!

That ini is certainly for your maxtor External.

If you care to see extensions for all files and folders.

Click Start My Computer (windows explorer)
Select Tools / Folder Options. Select the View Tab
Uncheck the "Hide file extensions for known file types"

Your good to go. :mrgreen:

And I guess it being there blocked the trojan, like the one that Flash Disinfector put on my memory stick. Cool.

Your good to go. :mrgreen:

Yay!!! :cheers:

I'll go do all those final clean-up things, and enjoy a clean computer... and be extra-picky about keeping it that way! Thanks so much, you've been a great help and very patient. So glad I stumbled on this place! :)
