Greetings,

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.
