for some strange reason my PC keeps creating 2 folders in C: drive D: drive and in C:Users and Documents - that is 2 folders in each place.

all these folders have strange names such as: Akyssvg3  Aworking207  Vpackage116.... etc.

each folder contains a number of files: pem files, word files, jpegs, txt files, sql files and the such.

when i attempt to open these files the program (word for instance) opens, but the file wont - it is corrupt...

(the files have interesting names too : aircraft-cabin-argue-catholic - a doc file ; lung-cat - jpeg.... and so on)


i am able to delete all these folders, but after i close the windows explorer or move to a different directory, new folders are created instead, with different names and different files in them!


can this be fixed? or is this normal behavior?


thanks in advance

I just found out what caused the files to be created - a program that is supposed to guard against ransom-ware call Cybereason. 

uninstalled it - and problem is solved
