Hi everyone.

Um I not sure some of what these files are (pic here http://imgur.com/8du3AZ4). Particularly Nobu icon and the SCU files,
I had adware removed last month. Could these be files be remnants? Are they harmless (particularly the SCU one. I tried opening it after scanning it, it wouldn't open).

THanks

See here http://pcsupport.about.com/od/fileextensions/f/dat-file.htm The file is associated with an installed program. If the program is removed, it is most likely safe to remove the dat file.

I don't know what the SCU file is though or what program is associate with it. . .
it's in my C drive.

My anitvirus (NIS 2012) and Malwarebytes didn't detect anything. . .?

Is it safe to delete?

(Sorry, I'm not that great with file types/computers.)

sure they are safe to delete,nor installed programs put files in the root of C:\ when installed ,just delete them to the recycle bin ,and leave them there for a month or so ,just in case something looks for them

According to your image posted, its a VCD file associated so it is safe to be removed. I happen to have these when converting movies during the VCD player days.
