con.* files - huh?

con.* files - huh?

Post by Rob Warmows » Wed, 21 Dec 1994 11:13:47

Running MW Antivirus under WFW causes a bad crash (cold boot required)
the file "con.o" is encountered.  Checking for these files under DOS does
not display them. Windows File Manager's Search finds them, but Rename or
Delete do not work, giving an "Access Denied" error message.

The "con" files appear in every subdirectory, and have a creation time
equivalent to the time the Windows Search for them was run.  

Any ideas as to what they are and why Antivirus chokes when it sees them?

Thanks in advance
