    loads of .fsm files appearing in student areas

    Hi there

    Some of our student areas .fsm files are just randomly appearing on mass. In one area there are 45,000 of them. They all have random names, when we delete them they come back again.

    The server is Windows Server 2003 R2.

    Any thoughts please?

    Thanks

    I don't know if this is any help but here's the FILExt entry: File Extension .FSM Details

    Any chance you could email me one? It's not ready for prime time but EduSweep 2's "file inspector" looks inside the file quite thoroughly and might be able to shed some light on it.
