[Solved]

 

 

Hi there,

 

I notices that there are some folders and files get automatically generated into the C Drive (System, SSD) every day, they are mostly named _MEIXXXXX, so far there are more than 100 folders and weight up to a few gbs. I tried to scan my system with Avast, but the result shows no virus infection.

 

Am just wondering if any of you can tell me what are they, are they normal. if they are not, how do i delete them and how do i prevent them from re-generating again?

 

Thanks.

 

here is a cap screen of my c drive.
