I am new in this forum. Actually used it once ages ago and the help was just great. Anyway, I came accross a problem on my husbands computer and tried to get rid of a virus. So far successful. But when I also was cleaning up his whole computer, I came accross a file in the "temporary internet files" folder, located under the "temp" folder in "local settings". The folders name is K1WL4XCL which can not be renamed or deleted. The files name starts with "startpage%26crg%3Dqua and about another two hundred numbers and letters before ending with ".gif.
I have tried to delete the folder, delete the file, rename the file (there is just nothing happening) I went into safe mode but still the same. When I do try to delete the folder, it comes up with the message, that the path of the file cannot be found.
I wonder if anyone has ever heard anything like that. It might be a harmless file, but I don't think so, because I've never heard of a file you cannot delete in the temp folder. And I could not find anything on google so far.
Thanks for you help
