Based on the file names, there is no way to determine exactly what they are without further information. Anytime you come across a suspicious file or you want a second opinion, submit it to one of the following online services that analyzes suspicious files:
In the "File to upload & scan
" box, browse to the location of the suspicious file and submit (upload) it for scanning/analysis. If you get a message saying "File has already been analyzed
", click Reanalyze file now
BTW, Malwarebytes Anti-Malware has a built-in FileAssassin
feature for removing stubborn malware or other malicious files that it did not detect.
-- If the file returns, then you probably have other malware on your system which is protecting or regenerating it.
- Go to the "More Tools" tab and click on the "Run Tool" button
- Browse to the location of the file(s) to remove using the drop down box next to "Look in:" at the top.
- When you find the file, click on it to highlight, then select Open.
- You will be prompted with a message warning: This file will be permanently deleted. Are you sure you want to continue?. Click Yes.
- If removal did not require a reboot, you will receive a message indicating the file was deleted successfully.
- Click Ok and exit MBAM.
- If prompted to reboot, then do so immediately.
Caution: Be careful what you delete. FileAssassin is a powerful program, designed to remove highly persistent files. Using it incorrectly could lead to serious problems with your operating system if removing a critical file.
