I don't know how to explain this but a few days ago, I bought an old laptop with Windows XP installed. For some odd reason, I had this strange curiosity to look through the previous owner's old files even though he had told me that it had most of it had been wiped clean. First, I looked through the music folder and found nothing.
Second, I looked through the documents folder. Still nothing. The videos folder had the same result. Finally, I looked through the pictures folder. At first, it was just a bunch of photographs of landscapes and people but there was one file that stuck out.
Strangely, there was a .pdf that was named "cryptic.pdf". After further examination, it seemed to hexadecimal code that after making a few changes, would reveal a .jpeg. When I repeated this process and discovered a .jpeg that was curiously named "screamsandashes.jpeg".
I'm sorry... it's just hard to describe the image that I saw. Okay, it was an extremely pixelated image of something that was screaming into the camera. I couldn't tell what it was though, as the .jpeg was extremely corrupted. Maybe it was human? I just don't know.
It may have been some sick joke by the previous owner but it didn't feel like it. I keep getting spam emails with a .zip file that contains four files: tormentnoise.ogg, mental.txt, helpme.dll and the .jpeg. All of them are corrupted beyond recognition.
I am not typing this anymore. If you want to know what will happen to me, where I will be or anything at all, you will not be able to contact me. Everything is over, so please forgive me for posting this.
