I thought eula.rtf was a difficult-to- remove infection ?? 
Merged post from another topic - Hamluis.
 
I have this on my pc for quiet a long time.
But recently I read on the internet that it could be dangerous.
And HARD to remove.
Every sub-flie, with number-names like '1025', ( I've got 25 of these kind of files) holds a 'eula.rtf-file, accompanied by HotFixInstallerUI.dll and the eula.rtf-file is in some foreign language ( arabic ?).
I included a pic of the remaining files, which I didn't dare to open. 
 
Can I, for example, delete this whole file with Tune-up-utilities-Shredder-function ??
 
Can someone ( Bleepingcomputer-expert ) guide me through the deletion-steps, if they are to be dangerous ???

Hi,

these files are part of Windows Updates, they are not malicious or dangerous. You don't need to be delete them.

ndp20sp2-kb2898856 is part of an update for .net framework, as you can see here: http://www.microsoft.com/en-us/download/details.aspx?id=41841

regards

Those are just end user license agreement files probably downloaded during an update. They are safe to delete. If you have a problem deleting them see this: http://social.msdn.microsoft.com/Forums/windowsdesktop/en-US/761704c0-dfc5-48c0-ae4e-3202371e4295/cannot-delete-file-eulartf?forum=windowsgeneraldevelopmentissues

Looks like we replied at the same time - but at least we're consistent :)
