I have stumbled across some files on a pretty new Windows 8.1 installation that I am not very familiar with and would love to have some community insight. After some Google searches I was unable to find any real information, which raised a red flag in my mind. Here are the files in question:

 

Filename:  LoginWizard_Core[1].js

Path: C:\Windows\System32\config\systemprofile\AppData\Local\Microsoft\Windows\INetCache\IE\

 

Filename: SourceHash{XXXXXXXX-XXXX-XXXX-XXXX-XXXXXXXXXXXX}

Path: C:\Windows\Installer\

Note: There are about 32 files that are like this. Each one has a unique value, but they are all formatted the same. I Googled one set of values without SourceHash{} and the results referenced some software package that I did have installed. However, out of curiosity, I really want to know more about these files.

 

Filename: WinStore.js

Path: C:\Windows\WinSxS\amd64_microsoft-windows-store-client-ui-web....

Note: My guess is that this is a legitimate file that controls the overall feel of the Windows Store. However, I added it just in case anyone can provide useful information about it.

 

Filename: winrm.vbs

Path: C:\Windows\WinSxS\....

Note: The filename makes reference to both wow64 and amd64, as well as "microsoft management core".

Filename: SourceHash{XXXXXXXX-XXXX-XXXX-XXXX-XXXXXXXXXXXX}

Path: C:\Windows\Installer\

 

I don't have a folder called "Installer" in my Win 8.1 Windows folder.

 

Filename:  LoginWizard_Core[1].js

Path: C:\Windows\System32\config\systemprofile\AppData\Local\Microsoft\Windows\INetCache\IE\

 

I don't have that file, in fact, I don't have a folder called "INetCache".

 

Filename: WinStore.js

Path: C:\Windows\WinSxS\amd64_microsoft-windows-store-client-ui-web...

 

.I do have the WinStore.js file in the location you describe.

 

Filename: winrm.vbs

Path: C:\Windows\WinSxS\...

 

I also have the winrm.vbs file.


All is well in Paradise.

Windows\Installer seems to be a hidden folder that is used by the Windows Installer Service to cache data for installers. So, this seems like a legitimate folder.

 

I can't seem to find any information about LoginWizard_Core, though.

 

Thanks for the quick response and information.
