View Full Version : [all variants] Samba acting slow, weird files and administration disabled?

Hey guys,

I set this whole computer system for my dad about 3 months ago, basically it is a debian server with Samba, Roaming Profiles and Windows Vista. Well it was all working fine until recently. Sudeenly he can't open the task manager because it is disabled by the administrator(he is part of ntadmins group). Weird file names show up when a network drive is opened until you let it sit for a while and in general any thing to do with samba is slow.

I was wondering if any of you would know what is going on because I just can't seem to figure it out.

Check out the picture attached to see what I mean about weird file names.

This really not the right place to post this as it has nothing to do with the server, It looks like the Vista computer is seriously infected, and either needs a good cleaning, or a reinstallation.

Actually it's not infected, I already scanned it and this same issue is occurring on all three workstations.
