As soon as I delete the normal batch of 25 documents, another 25 soon appear.

I have a Windows 7 ASUS laptop.

I just noticed that when I pull up LIBRARIES> Documents
I see a continuous amount of new files in the Documents Library.
I have been deleting as many as I can but there is no end in sight.

As soon as I delete the normal batch of 25, another new 25 documents soon appear.

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, PeerBlock, SpywareBlaster and CCleaner Professional plus the above mentioned, Cybereason.

Hi ervay :)

These files are actually bait files created by CyberReason RansomFree. If you disable the program, delete the files and wait, you'll see that they won't comeback.
