Mysterious *.t files

  1. Hi everybody, This is my 1st post so please excuse me if its in the wrong section.

    Ive done a search and cant seem to find anything similar on the forum, so here goes...

    Im currently working on a sick friends machine, its pretty slow, so i have carried out most of the regular housekeeping exercises.

    In doing this i have noticed alot of .t files scattered around the HDD, over 28 thousand files to be a bit more precise.

    Initially i thought that they may be save game files from Warcraft or one of the other games that are installed on this machine. When i did a search i found them to be absoloutely everywhere,

    the root of C
    users documents and settings folders, multiple users
    program files
    windows folder
    etc etc

    I am wondering if any of you good folks have encountered anything similar to this?

    Oh and the prefix to most files is a random alphnumerical string of 8 charecters, there seems to be no sequence with the names, just 8 random numbers and letters.

    There are also similar .EXE files on the root of the C: drive...

    Im stumped, if any of you can help id appreciate it greatly. :)

    Cheers, Niall.

    Hello and welcome to Techspot.

    That sounds a little suspicious to me.

    Let`s check to see if you have a virus/malware infection.

    Go and read this thread HERE, then post a HJT log as an attachment.

    If it turns out you do have a virus/malware problem, I will move your thread to the appropriate forum.

    Regards Howard :wave: :wave:
