    I noticed these really strange folders on my hd. They have long random lettered names with many files inside with similarly random names. I delete but they come back. They contain 0 bytes of data but last week they suddenly took up whole hard drive! I ran superantispyware, Avira, Avast, windows defender, and malwarebytes. All came back negative. It could not be malware if none of these detected righto_O:eek:

    what types of files are they? Can you please post a screenshot.
    Btw. Are you using two AV?
    If those files are executable files try uploading them to Avira, Windows defender, SAS

    I have seen this before, let me guess you have CCleaner running before these files show up?
