Sorry if this post is in the wrong forum!

I was removing a file from my zip file on my computer, and I found a few things that don"t seem right on here, not sure if they are safe to leave here?
I would be greatful if someone could tell me..:thumbsup:

zip folder file..nppw C:\program files\common files\.. 339k (compressed zip... 9/6/2007 2:14pm when I click "open containing folder" I find all of these in there,
cataloge
Fullwebauth.sql
identifiers.xml
indicators.xml
nppw
popularSites.xml
redirectors.xml
resourses.xml
safelist.xml
safelist.xml
throttle.xml

The list goes on to about 6 more and they all end in "xml"plus there is a few more of these nppw file folders in here as well... some I can not get them to open due to a warning pops up says they are either "invalid or corrupt"
....could this be a virus or trojan?..or just some intrusion on my computer?
I have Nortons Internet Security 2007.
Thanks if anyone can help me with this..:flowers:

I would recommend that you scan the file for viruses at either Jotti or Virustotal.
The name says it all -- 59 and holding permanently
