HI, recently i have noticed a bunch of random folders popping up in C:\ . They have random names such as "332d84a32f69fe231db3de09." These files are locked by the system, but only contain setups, and i was wondering how i could delete them. Attached is a picture of my C:\ drive, to give an idea of what i'm looking at here

You can try booting to Safe Mode and delete them there. If that doesn't work, install Unlocker or LockHunter. Then when you try to delete one of them, you will get a window where you can tell Unlocker or LockHunter to delete it on the next boot.

You can also try telling it to Unlock the file/folder. If that works you can then delete the file/folder normally.
