I've come across a block of russian_locale files on my computer. They are in my FIXUP folder. Are these legitimate files, or are they some kind of hack/virus? If so, how should I delete them?

Hello.

I don't think that it's malware, but could you please provide the complete filepath of the files in question?

Okay. It's buried under several folders. (I have several russian_locale files). I see now that it may be part of my old, undeleted Kaspersky files.
