Today while investigating the frequent freeze of my windows 10 machine I found some mysterious folders in each of my drive containing some files. Folders are hidden and readonly. Most of these files do not open but some files open but have text not understandable.
like in 
C Drive contains
Folder name : Xstorage172
Contains Files
  • arrange-meaning.rtf 
  • gave-thick-found-shopping.pem
  • independenceplasterbombers.docx 
  • jointhumblelendreplacement.mdb
  • laboratory complement amongst manufacturer.sql 
  • mike-changes.txt
  • one_pursue_degree_succeeded.jpg 
  • screw.chamber.quantity.divide.xlsx
  • touch_guess_goal.doc UOA1ao6zzjvk.xls
D Drive contains two folders
Vcaches191 and ysystem45
Vcaches191 folder contains Files
  • accordingly_person_nato_spectrum.xlsx
  • clubs.production.confirmed.therefore.doc 
  • CSW.docx detriment education deck focus.rtf 
  • devil_numerous_higher.jpg 
  • innovationyork.txt 
  • interviews consequent sword bearing.xls 
  • receive_relatively.mdb
  • resistance.dominated.processes.pem 
  • rope visual voting.sql
and  ysystem45 folder contains files
  • 8EAo.xlsx 
  • coefficient.language.race.pem 
  • completelywindsadult.mdb
  • dense annoy species.docx 
  • graduatecumbersome.xls 
  • lift formerlyorder.txt 
  • LKZlHp2Fyq1.rtf 
  • swept-males-snakes.jpg 
  • whereas furnish want.doc 
  • xbP3GhRM.sql
See the pattern? Each folder have same type of files but with different names.
Is this some kind of virus or malware???
