    AU_Log
    AU_Temp(subfolders: 1, 2, 3 and AU_Down)

    Try right clicking them and look at the properties and see if you can tell what they are.

    Hi bigc73542
    Actually before posting I tried but nothing more than size in Mb. There is a DAT file(50426000.DAT) google bounces back. I do check regularly but this time I was buzy and the only thing I remember is that I did 3 or 4 online scanning(I 0nly remember 2:RAV and trend micro). I usually delete all there ActiveX. could it be related.

    Being an AU file could it be an autoupdate file?

    Hi bigc73542

    I deleted them to recyclebin for safety measure first, rebooted and every thing was ok. then tried a few online scanners, they reappeared when Trendmicro online scanner was used (they belong to it). Thank you very much
