Those are simply random, single-use filenames. As such, you probably will never get a 'hit' on them with a search engine like Google.

You may be able to view what's in the files by opening them with something like Notepad. But, don't be surprised if it appears to be just gibberish.

Recommend visiting our "Virus, Spyware & Malware Removal" forum and follow the "Malware and Spyware Cleaning Guide" instructions. This will guide you through a few preparations, as well as instruction for posting your OTListIt2 log in that forum.
