I am reposting this because of invalid vimeo video link in the previous post. Sorry for this.

When we right click the text file (eg:-imp.txt) icon and click on the properties, the file type is showing "Python File (no console) (text/plain)" instead of "plain text document(text/plain)". All text files in

the system has this problem. After editing this text file, some icons in the desktop is disappearing. Also there is login loop problem in other ttys. I am reposting this. I think that when posting this for the

first time you didn't understand the problem and issued a warning. So that I am posting the video link. Wheather my computer is hacked or infected with any malware, rootkits. My Desktop running same OS version

and with same updates do not have this problem. I uninstalled gnome and reinstalled it but the problem is there.
