I'm posting this here mainly because I don't know where else it would make sense to post a question like this.
Every day - sometimes several times in a day - a new, hidden, folder with a long number for a name (e.g., 23471883120156218) appears in my My Documents folder. Each of these numbered folders contains a single file named AnalyzerCache.dat. The AnalyzerCache.dat files are small, generally under 20kB, and contain some sort of binary data. I see the folders because I have Windows Explorer set to display hidden files and folders.
This has been going on since the day I bought my computer, back in January, 2012, and has had me curious ever since. The folders and files are harmless enough, and I can (and do) delete them freely with no ill effects observed. But I would really like to know what's creating them in the first place.
The computer is a Micro Center PowerSpec B322 running Windows 7 64-bit. There's nothing special about it, and I run all of the same utility software and most of the same application software on my laptop, which does not collect these AnalyzerCache.dat files.
Does anyone know what creates these files and how I can get it to stop?
