I have no idea what these files could be. I don't think I created them, even mistakenly, since I would never use the "my pictures" folder or tell any programs to store data there. I've tried guessing various file extensions with no luck in finding a match. I tried opening them in a hex editor to look for any clues, but didn't find anything there. Anybody have any suggestions on how to identify an unknown file?
I honestly have no idea what these things are. The only possible idea I can think of is that they might be harvested data a virus or malware program compiled, but it wouldn't make sense to hide them in very common locations. Antivirus and malware scans have turned up nothing.
Any ideas? Thanks!
