Be aware that it's possible to make and name folders manually through legitimate means and programs so the entries in the root of the drive probably don't mean anything.
Which folders are you referring to?

Hi swifer11...

If the files at the bottom of the list are what you are referring to, those are system files and would only be showing if you have disabled "Hide Protected Operating System Files" in Folder Options.

It's a good idea to keep these protected files hidden so that they are not accidentally moved or removed.

To change this setting, open Control Panel, double click on the "Folder Options" icon, click on the "View" tab, and put a tick in the box next to "Hide Protected Operating System Files". Apply the settings.

You might also want to hide other files and folders that are critical to system operation. Put a tick in the radio button next to "Do not show hidden files and folders" and Apply that change, too.
