I have encountered a new and puzzling problem on my laptop.
It is a Lenovo Z570, running Win 7 64 bit, with 8G ram.
I use Avast free version, MBAM free, and SUPERAntiSpyware free, all up to date.
I ran an avast boot scan as well as a thorough virus scan, an MBAM scan and a Superantispyware scan and the only results I got were the tracking cookies Superantispyware always finds.
Here's what the problem is:
Two new folders - xconfig172 and bdates202 appeared on my computer with the strangest file names in them.
Added to that 2 new users - Aksksx and Qw4aw appeared at the same time with equally bizzare file names in their folders.
While there are no .exe files in any of the folders, I'm concerned because I an unable to delete the users on my machine.
I am the only user ever physically on this machine.
I originally posted this with screenshots on the Win 7 forum. the address is:
I hope posting URL's isn't frowned on.
Thanks in Advance.
