Random folders with unknown contents up to 1gig!

  1. Recently i have had a problem whereby i find hidden folders with hundreds (and i really do mean HUNDREDS) of zipped folders. Every single one is 191 kb, and they all are named random software name

    I have found folders up to 1gig before. My pc has no spyware/trojans...etc. and i have every reccomended program, but is there anyway of stopping them or detecting them if you do have them?

    My pc has recently lost 3gigs and i think that those 3gigs have fallen victim to these hidden folders. Please help!

    Hello again. Maybe your system is infected with some virus/malware.

    Go HERE and follow the instructions.

    Post a fresh HJT log, only after doing the above.

    Regards Howard :)
