I noticed that when I empty my Temporary Inernet Files subfolders [TIF] they all are deleted except for one titled RNQ8SGD6 and containing only a .dat file dating back to 2003.
I also find that eight such Temporary Internet Folders are regenerated within minutes after I begin browsing the internet after TIF deletion.
1) Is it safe to manually delete that RNQ8SGD6 folder which seems to survive the normal method of deleting TIF and offline content via Internet Properties-->Delete Files-->Delete Offline content?
2) Does the fairly rapid regenration of eight such TIF subfolders after deletion indicate some sort of malware infection?
I've scanned with NortonAntivirus 2004, Spybot 1.3, AdAware SE, Online Trojan scan GFI, and several other online viral scans.
All that shows up in these scans are some tracking cookies.
Thanks in advance:
IE 6.0 SP 1 with all critical updates
