Hi, Bleeping Computer team!
It's been a while since this folders appeared in my C: disk, but I tought they were "normal", until my computer started running slow.
I've made a search on the web (in one of your topics in the forum) and found that is a kind of spyware. There a guy from your team said that I must post apart and not follow the steps that you gave to that other user.

Can you help me with this problem? What do I do?

Thank you
