Notes about the XDB file extension:



Incorrect file associations could be the result of underlying issues within your PC system. As such it is highly recommended to scan your PC for invalid registry entries, unused processes and other unfavourable system settings to identify slowdown issues.

The XDB file type is primarily associated with 'HyperCD' by John Galt Media, Inc.. HyperCD is a brand name that describes a way of removing a small slice of data from a digital file such that the file is made unreadable. Some have invented the word "encrippling" to describe this process. Only when the encrippled file on a computer is linked with the missing piece of data on a Web site can the user view the content. Often a CD will be issued in this format, forcing the user to the maker's site before they can view whatever is on the CD.
