I used the software Combofix and since I have a folder "C:\ProgramData" that appears.

Is this normal? Can delete?

If i hide the folder, i have a some bug :/

The correct way to uninstall ComboFix, all of its related folders, files and logs is to make sure it is still on the Desktop (<-Important!!!) and follow these instructions.
  • When finished you will see a dialog box stating that "ComboFix has been uninstalled".
  • After that, you can remove the ComboFix.exe program from your Desktop by right-clicking on it and choosing delete.
  • If you encounter any problems using the switch from the Run dialog box or Search field, just rename ComboFix.exe to Uninstall.exe, then double-click on it to remove.
