Scrap files on user folder!


I guess you forgot to attach the image. But anyway, it is possible that the scrap files you found in your user folder are only temp files or temporary files used by some applications to cache something or maybe some log files left by your previous installations.

To be sure that it is not a virus that is doing this, update your antivirus then run a full system scan on your computer. If the scan did not found anything, try checking the contents of the files.

If the files don’t have any supported application to open it, try installing a disk cleaning utility tool to automatically remove those files.

Or, if the files are not too many you can check each file first then delete it afterwards.
