SUPERAntiSpyware found these 2 files on the Quick Scan: "NWMInfo.sol" and the folder named "6CQVVHJZ"

I had previously ran AntiVir and Windows Defender and neither identified them as problems.

The folder is located here:
  • C:\Users\Blue\AppData\Roaming\Macromedia\Flash Player\#SharedObjects\6CQVVHJZ
Other items in that folder include:
  • download.cnet.com
  • flash.quantserve.com
  • newsimg.bbc.co.uk
  • s.ytimg.com
  • s3.getmiro.3.0.com.s3.amazonaws.com
  • vitamine.networldmedia.net
  • www.chatroulettenetwork.com
What to do with them? Why does Flash Player seems like a constant problem (I didn't download flash on purpose)?

(I found this article on .SOL's)

Hi,
Flash Player is not a problem per se, but the files that Super AntiSpyware found are it's cookies. the extension .SOL is that of a flash player cookie. it's up to you whether you want to keep them or not. Most cookies are not a risk at all because they are there to store information about a particular web site, AKA your credentials so that you don't have to log in every time, and your preferences for the site. The ones you want to worry about are the tracking cookies, those that come from sites made specifically to serve up adds. You don't want adds up the yin yang.

Thanks. I deleted them. (I don't mind re-enter info for Flash or Adobe product.)
