  1. This was resolved by going to command prompt and deleting windows.old.000.
    Windows.old was resolved by deleting via disk cleanup.
    Found a real good tutorial on window seven forum, especially for the command prompt.
    So, I am still curious to is this was a virus or what?

    Got a HP P7 1297c, originally loaded with Windows Home Prem and now has 7 Pro/64bit. I did the free "10" upgrade and decided to go back to 7 Pro. After which I found the Windows.old.000 file/files in C:/ I opened the sub folders(windows, system32, tasks, Обновление Браузера Яндекс).

    So, what is this that was found in the sub folder >>>> Обновление Браузера Яндекс ?????
    no previous versions, security won't open,

    Is this something to worry about?? Virus, hack, malware?

    Okay, I found a great tutorial on disk clean up and did a delete.
    But it only deleted the "windows.old" folder and not the "windows.old.ooo" folder.

    Keep going, you have to be suspicious, not curious ..... have you done really deep checks with (say) TrendMicro housecall or other on-demand checks?
