Same 2 files keep appearing

by Requizen / February 5, 2010 9:31 AM PST

Hello, I just had my desktop cleared after a particularly nasty virus (the Antivirus 2010 bug), and have been running periodic Symantec scans since. I have had the same 2 files keep appearing in the scan log, which are:


I have several of them in quarantine, and have deleted others entirely. They appear to be temporary internet files, which would lead me to believe they are malacious, but I don't want to worry myself if they turn out to be just some routine file that Symantec doesn't recognize.

Should I be concerned? Was my computer not cleaned entirely of this problem?

Any answers are thanked in advance.

Help, my PC with Windows 10 won't shut down properly

Since upgrading to Windows 10 my computer won't shut down properly. I use the menu button shutdown and the screen goes blank, but the system does not fully shut down. The only way to get it to shut down is to hold the physical power button down till it shuts down. Any suggestions?
