A scripting virus? You should check all of your files for viruses, with an up-to-date scanner, Such as Norton Antivirus 2002. The .vbs extension is a common sign of a virus.

Almost certainly a virus..I had this happen to me about a year ago but in my case it was really scary as I could see all my files changing as I watched.....lost a heap of stuff but chalked it up to experience. It has made me a lot more cautious about what I open.
