A virus renamed several of our users word and excel files by appending a specific file extension after .docx or .xlsx. Example is "JulyReport.docx.xxxx" or JulyReport.xlsx.xxxx". I read that the first thing to do is insert that file extension in the LDAPPL3 and query the affected devices after they have scanned and search for that file extension. My second question is that, can I insert and add that file extension in the location where the multimedia scanned extensions are so my query criteria will search for "Computer"."Multimedia Files"."Scanned Extensions" LIKE ".xxxx" I really appreciate your answer and suggestions. Thank you so very much. Ernie.

Please disregard. Found LDAPPL3.
If you are 9.5SP1 or later then consider using the 'DataFileExtensions=' option.
in 9.5 edit your ldapp3.template file and add this as it's own new section and add the extensions you are looking for e.g. DataFileExtensions=.pst
Once done, make it available to clients in the Manage Software List section of the console. This will search for ALL files with that extension and list them in a Data Files section under Software in the client inventory. Multimedia files just counts the files; this tells you what files they are and where.
In 9.6 you don't need to edit the ldappl at all, just edit the agent settings for the inventory.
