Yeah so I have reason to believe to stupid little files aren't safe to be on my computer. It's not so much the removing of them that's a problem, but rather the fact that they seem to have disappeared. I've use windows search obviously, and the next best thing I knew to do was to go to folder options and make it so that windows files, as well as hidden files show up. This didn't help either, so as far as finding them I don't what else to do. I'll run a scan of course and see if they show up, cause I'm like 99% sure their dangerous.

Can you elaborate? Did you download these files? What makes you think they are unsafe? Were they part of a program that you uninstalled?

I must of downloaded something bad. I can't remember how I found them. But anyway one of them was outright deemed unsafe from avast, as for the other it just gives me a bad vibe, however it did show up at the same as the other, and they have similar names. The names are nonsense ones, like fzqpojt.exe.
