Hello! I have tried to google what this temp folder is for some time now, though nothing comes up on it. "Frozen-genpy-27". I have asked around in a few places but can't seem to get much information on it.  It is entirely empty and recreates it's self after deletion. 

 

 

Thank you.

 

Realised I should of put a bit more information.  I'm using Windows 7 Ultimate 64 bit.  The only things I did to look into it a bit more as it's all I know it use process explorer to see if it was tied to anything and tried cleaning it out to see if it remade it's self which it did.

Not certain myself what it is but we can do 2 things.

One
submit it for examination

Submit it to one of the following online services that analyzes suspicious files:In the "File to Scan" (Upload or Submit) box, browse to the location of the suspicious file(s) and submit (upload) it for scanning/analysis. If you get a message saying "File has already been analyzed", click Reanalyze or Scan again.


Two now we can take it off the machine as it is in a Temp file.

Empty your temp folders using TFC (Temporary File Cleaner)
  • Please download TFC by Old Timer and save it to your desktop.
    alternate download link
  • Save any unsaved work. (TFC will close ALL open programs including your browser!)
  • Double-click on TFC.exe to run it. (If you are using Vista, right-click on the file and choose "Run As Administrator".)
  • Click the Start button to begin the cleaning process and let it run uninterrupted to completion.
  • Important! If TFC prompts you to reboot, please do so immediately. If not prompted, manually reboot the machine anyway allowing Windows to load normally (not into Safe Mode) to ensure a complete clean.

Well that's the problem, It's just an empty folder. It won't let me upload it on VirusTotal.

Then just delete the folder it's harmless.. Most likely its a place holder for backup of some app you may have like perhaps McAfee.
It uses it for temporary storage.. The App may recreate it one day.

I don't have McAfee. I ran TFC and it was remade right on reboot. My computer also BSOD'd after running TFC as I started running a scan with MWB. 

 

I was told that it may have something to do with Python (Which I don't use) but I haven't been able to find anything to prove that.

 

Thank you for your time!

Python may be it or something else. Can't get a concrete answer. Reboot your machine and then scan it

You are most welcome..

Alright, well I rebooted and gave it a scan. Nothing comes up.   So at this point should I just not worry about it? Sorry if the questions seem a bit tedious to answer, after a fairly bad rootkit I've been trying to educate my self more about computers/learning how to monitor stuff with TCPView. Usually I can find some solid information but there's nothing on "Frozen-genpy-27"   If you don't think it's anything to worry about that's enough for me.

Yes I feel it was just a Temp folder for something, you may not even have on here anymore. I find nothing dangerous on any part of the name. Even if it were to come back I feel it's purpose is not malicious.

Alright, well that's good enough for me! This computer is off a pretty fresh dban+reinstall so I find it a bit odd but who knows. Nothing bad comes up related to it so hopefully it's nothing.

 

 

Thanks again for your time!

From my research, it seems to point to:

1.  Program:  BitLord
2.  Publisher: House of Life

By what I was able to find, it is a torrent downloader.

Best of luck.

Well, that what it seemed to point to

That was the only reference I could find.

Boopme might be on a the right track.  Suggest that you search your hard drive for any folders containing the word python.

Best of luck.

Ahah! I think I may of found the cause.  I searched my C: Drive for "Python" I found two Application extensions called python27.dll and pythoncom27.dll. They seemed to be in the bin folder of my Intel® Update Manager.  So I imagine that's the cause?
