Now that is scary. I am good about screening stuff that I download for viruses, worms, trojan programs, etc. But I don't think any of them would catch this. Image files like jpg, gif, or bmp have always been pretty safe in this regard. But what can you do about this.

Are you telling me that he had no overt pictures on his machine as well as no other behaviors that were problematic; e.g., chat rooms, e-mails, etc.
