Frequent crashes, lost partition
My girlfriends Win7 machine started acting up lately. Firefox kept crashing, espacially with Flash plugins running (browser games). I ran a bunch full of virus scans with no finds. Hardware seem OK since it runs alright from CD. Harddisk seems also alright, i had it connected to another computer (my Mac ;-)) and could read it straight away. Strange thing is that the drive used to have two partitions where the second one seems to be lost. Most of the Thunderbird mail profile seems to have vanished. But a strange hidden "Linux" partitions appeared instead. Any ideas? A wild rootkit? A really strange virus?? Hope for input of win-experts.
Is this a good question?
