They are like 20+ folders which have long names (e.g. 13cb4f2d8713a5627df08fe2). A click into the file reveals that it is something about "HotFixInstaller" Hotiron Hotfix Installer...Microsoft corporation.
This seems okay, however i find it extremely odd that there are 20+ folders which have different name but contains the same file. Could someone advised me whether it is safe or do i have a malware in my computer.
Thanks for any assistance rendered

There is no problem with this: There are many times that the system creates these folders when installing programs and/or updates, and it is perfectly normal to have these folders on the C:\ drive. Sometimes they are left there after their use, when they should have been removed, and so accumulate in number.
Hi I have this same problem and I was wondering if you had found a solution to it?
It is not malware.
If you want to learn more about these folders, I suggest that you start a new topic in the forum relating to your own Windows Operating System, such as the XP forum or the Vista forum etc.
Edit: I just checked my own C:\ drive and see that I have 6 of these folders there at the moment.
