I have some problems with Windows XP. After scanning the whole file system with anti-virus program, each and every file got an extension ".lwsdnrl" ? Even if I try to open the file with the appropriate program, it fails. For example, a file called "myFile.pdf" got converted to "myFile.PDF.lwsdnrl". In addition on every file when you click on properties there is the following text : "This file came from another computer and might be blocked" and an "unblock" button. However, I found out how to unblock all files globally, bit still they look damaged and can not be opened. For example:
- openning PDF file fails with error, saying the file is of unrecognized type or it is damaged
- openning .doc file just fails
- openning .xls file succeeds but just a meaningless sequence of symbols is shown on the screen
- openning .jpeg file says "no preview available"
I read about Microsoft streams and executed:
streams -s -d *.*
in folders with damaged files and a lot of streams were deleted, but that didn't help
Any help how to restore my information will be appreciated. Thanks.
