I have a Windows ASUS laptop. I just noticed that when I pull up LIBRARIES> Documents
I see a continuous amount of files in the Documents Library.
I have been deleting as many as I can but there is no end in sight. I do not know how they got on my computer.

 

Cybereason.com has been blocking a few every-time I delete manually into the Recycle Bin so I do not think I would open any to be on the safe-side. The names are like:

whom cheese.sql
egg-lighten-base.xlsx

I have Norton Security, Malwarebytes and CCleaner Professional plus the above mentioned, Cybereason.

Since you are here I take it you are running W7. Open Windows Explorer then the folder with all these files in it. Click on the first one to select it, then - top left - click on 'Organise' and scroll down to 'Select all'.. Then move the cursor back over the selected files and RIGHT click and select 'Delete'. However if this works as it is meant to, ALL files in that folder will be deleted.

 

If this works - or especially if it doesn't - go and start a topic here, but read the notes at the head of the section first,
