I've been seeing more directores such as this "c:\BDD12A79A2DBB1603201A20" or any combination of letters/numbers in the last few months.
1. What are they? I know they are installation directories for patches, installations, etc... but why aren't they deleted at the end of the install?
2. Can they be deleted? They don't appear to be hurting anything.. it's more a clean up issue than anything. It's not 'user friendly' to look at a drive and see them.

Folders like that in C directory are not normal.

I suggest you go to the Malware Forum and run all the steps located in the START HERE. These self-help tools will help you clean up 70% of problems on your own. If you are still having problems after doing the steps, then please post a HiJackThis Log in THAT forum. If you are unable to run and/or post a HJT log, then post that in your initial post in the topic you create in that forum.

If you are still having problems after being given a clean bill of health from the malware expert, then please return to THIS thread and we will pursue other options to help you solve your current problem(s).
