View Full Version : Warcraft III Virus?

May 21, 2007, 09:10 PM
Hi, I've had Warcraft III since it was released, and installed it on my desktop computer. Soon afterward an image kept taking over folder icons (on all sorts of documents and folders for totally different stuff) with an icon that seems to be from the game. Recently I installed the game on my MacBook Pro and at first it was fine. Now I have realized that the image is appearing to "take over" like it has on my other computer. Is it possible I have a corrupt disc? Does anybody else have experience with this? An image is posted below to show you what I mean. Notice it is in the WoW folder, where it should not be.

I very much doubt it, especially on a Mac. World of Warcraft: The Burning Crusade's installer installs from those "tome" .mpq's, so those are just some of the installation files. That's why they have the Warcraft icons. And there are several of them because WoW is a very large game. ^-^

On this image; however, you can kinda see(sry the image is small) that the images also appear in my Microsoft Word folder. I'm sure they appear elsewhere, it is just hard to locate where they show up.

I opened my Word folder and I have all of those exact same files as near as I can tell. My icons are different though.

This just means that the file associations are set up to show that icon for a particular file. If you right click on the file and choose Action > Get Info, you'll be able to change the icon that is displayed for those file types.

Leaving it like it is won't hurt though. ;)

If I go to Get Info, next to "Kind" it says "Warcraft III Data (PowerPC)". And, trying to open the item that has the image on it leads to starting up Warcraft III.
