0 kb executables in system32 folder, eraseme, etc.

  1. So, my C: partition (8gb for windows and main stuff :haha: ) ran out of space, so I started checking what's taking up the space (I didn't install anything). The Windows folder was quite big so I thought it was temp files. But then in system32 I found a bunch of empty executables with the name eraseme_xxxxx.exe, also cox-securitymarvin.exe, iexplore.exe, explorer.exe, nvidia.exe and others. What virus/trojan is the cause of this and how should I remove it. Also any ideas on what's taking up the space?
