Unusual behavior-virus?

My first question so not sure this is in right place or topic is well formed, here goes.

Have a PC (Sony Vaio, Win7) that started doing something unusual.  I moved photos and videos from a Sony Handycam to it; looked at one of the fotos, and rotated it.  That file then disappeared-gone, can't see it.

I searched the entire hard drive; no file but there were shortcuts to the file.  When I navigate that shortcut, I can see the photo; I can save it to a USB thumbdrive (and see it) but if I save it to the computer, it says "file exists do you want to over write?".  When I save it-it's not visible.

Looks like there is something that is concealing files that are opened and changed.  I haven't changed any other files, I am quarantining it till I know what's up.

I have Macafee virus protection; ran it, no virus found.

Any ideas?

It's not a virus.   I moved this to 'SecurityCenter' as this is where a thread is already started about this issue, where you may wish to join in.   It's a known issue with the software and they are working on it.
