This is actually a couple questions rolled together but I don't know how to separate them.


Today when I went in to open my Documents folder, I noticed a new entry in the left-hand list (in Windows Explorer) I'd never seen before. Usually there is a 'Documents' folder with a 'My Documents' under it. Today there was also another folder named 'Documents' underneath them both which I did not put there. There were a couple things in it I could just delete, but there were 2 things I'm not sure about:  


NTIBUN5.dll and NTILiveUpdate.dll


I can't find anything useful in my searches and a Malwarebytes scan turns up nothing. So:


--Where did they come from?

--Why are .dll files in a Document folder anyway?

--What are they doing, if anything?

--Can I delete them?


As far as I know they're not causing any trouble, it just bugs me that they appeared from out of nowhere, and I want to get rid of them or put them in their place. ;)
