It's best not bothering to reply to only one individual. Just reply as you've been doing (within this thread) so that others that may be able to help have a chance to do so (and you just might get this issue resolved much more quickly). On top of that there may be others searching the internet for an answer to the same or similar problem, and conversing within the thread allows them to view all of the relevant info.

I'm not sure how Norton's rates are determined but it may relieve you to know that if these really are the lock files I'm thinking they may be, they are very small in size (about 20 to 30 bytes or so).

I was referring to the Windows Explorer file browser rather than Internet Explorer in that statement I made.

Can you post a screenshot of a sample of these files, as well as some of your document files, within a Windows Explorer window?
