IGNORE  - SOLVED!! The folders were placed there by Cybereasons Ransomfree. Please delete this post. 

 

I found a folder on my computer that I didn't recognise, when I opened it, it contained files with strange names (which I didn't open). I removed the folder with AVG removal tool. But when I restarted my computer another folder (always starting with X - so Xtools243 or Xversions19) replaced the folder I had removed. 

 

I have run Malwarebytes anti-malware and AVG both come back clean. 

 

Anyone know what this is? I haven't noticed anything strange with my computer but I would very much like to get rid of this "returning" folder as I don't trust it. 

 

Edit: there is another folder also under C: that I can't delete and contains files with names like: courage.taxi.mdb, ally.selfish.serving.realistic.pem, royalproof

 

Cheers!
