I have discovered 945 strange files in my program files folder.
these files are long numbers with letters included. they look like unfinished kazaa mp3 downloads. i've not used kazaa for
about 6 months, i uninstalled every trace of kazaa off my pc.
when i hover over any of the files it says 'file modified august 2001'
i can't find a program to open the files, if i try to find a program on the net it says 'bad information'.
i recently installed norton firewall, and mp3checker, i put norton 2003 to check a selection of the files and they were clean.
the files vary in size frm 500 bites to 1100 kbites.
i'm scared of deleting them.

my spec's are winXP pro, pent 2-1gig, about 380 ram, 55gig hdv.
can u help please?

As you have probably observed on this forum,Running an HJT scan can be a very revealing thing to do. At the very least, it will tell you everything is OK. So I suggest you follow these steps:

First, create a folder in C:\Program Files and label it HiJackThis. This is where you will download the executable file. This is also the folder where your HJT backups will be stored. Click Here to download the file.

Close all windows, including this and any other browser windows. Launch HJT and click the Scan button. When the scan is finished, the Scan button will have changed to Save Log. Click that and save the log to your HJT folder. DO NOT CHANGE ANYTHING YET. Most of the listed items are harmless or even essential. Wait for recommendations from someone trained in HJT log file interpretation.

Now open the saved log file... In the toolbar at the top of the window under Edit, select Select All. Copy (Ctrl+C) the text and paste (Ctrl+V) it into a reply in this thread.
