In Windows Explorer, click Tools->Folder Options, and on the View tab select "Show hidden files and folders" then UNcheck the "Hide extensions for known file types" option and click OK.

Then tell us if it's a bootex.log, bootex.txt, bootex.exe or what kind of "bootex file" it is, please.

Also, have you previously had the card out of the camera and used it in a card reader, instead of always only connecting the camera to the computer?

Your probably just looking in the wrong folder for your images. Maybe an internal camera data folder nothing to do with your photos folders.
