That's an odd name for a folder. Where exactly is it at on your hard drive?

I've seen many of these numeric folders on computers at the shop - I presume they're a Windows folder that contains something that affects the Windows system (hence their special access permissions). As I recall, they have a couple of small files in them. Generally we see these when attempting to do a backup for a customer - so we don't have occasion to look into them often.
My browser caused a flood of traffic, sio my IP address was banned. Hope to fix it soon. Will get back to posting as soon as Im able.
