In Windows, they are Control Panel Extensions. Or, they could be "Corel colour palette" (apparently!).

'cause see this is what happened....I got an email extention .cpl it was like a letter or something I think I knew it was unwise to open it, but I opted for opening it anyways......hehehehe Then I see it sort of writing to the registry and a lot of it multiplying.........hehehe, so I figured "this might not be good". Well anyhow I got this Trojan registry monitoring program, and it showed me while all this was happening and I kind of deleted them, so I figured things to be ok now. But still I don't know........:D

If you haven't done so already, you can read about some the virus's (or is it viri?) by going here (http://securityresponse.symantec.com/avcenter/vinfodb.html/) and doing a search for .cpl
