I few days ago I noticed several unknown files had appeared on my D drive ( used mainly for data).
These consisted of a string of numbers and letters viz: 3590F75ABA9E485486C100C1A9D4FF06zzzzz..zzz.zz.rar.
I removed them all - about 1gb in total - and decided to backtrack to a previous restore point. On completion my Kaspersky Internet Security database was corrupted.
I did a repair and then updated the database and ran a full scan. No problems were found.

Today another similar file has appeared on my D drive again. Can anyone help?

I am using Windows 7 Home on my Acer desktop computer.

Hello......Have a look through this link where you will see the exact same file as yours.

3590F75ABA9E485486C100C1A9D4FF06ZZ.Z...Z....ZZZZ....read through and even though its been uploaded to virustotal

on at least 2 occasions ..about 5 months ago firstly and the last being 6 days ago .

Nothing conclusive has been found and in the link it disappeared by itself.

While Spywareterminator in itself is not on the list of incompatible with KAV,Clam antivirus is and this i understand comes

integrated with SPY/Term....So do you notice any problems like slowdown or similar even though thats not your question.

Anyway there is nothing conclusive in the link and they don't consider it a danger so it is possible it has something to do

with SpywareTerminator but i accept it could be another program you have installed....possible log files maybe.

I see nothing else untoward in your GSI but another member or moderator may spot something

Thanks for the help.

I do have slowdown issues which started when the rogue files appeared.

Should I uninstall SpywareTerminator?

Hi again.....Well if you do have slowdown problems certainly uninstall it as it will cause all kinds of conflicts.

Spyware Terminator includes:

Fast spyware scanning * 100% real-time protection * HIPS protection * Antivirus protection...so everything that KAV is doing.

http://www.spywareterminator.com/features/...e-features.aspx

Follow this to disable it and then remove from programs/features.............

http://www.spywareterminator.com/support/f...d=spyterm_help5

Give it a few days and see if those strange files come back.

Hi,

Uninstalled SpywareTerminator but this hasn't solved the problem.

Already, several rogue files have appeared on my D drive in the last couple of hours.

I've discovered, by monitoring every program opened, that the files are created during a scan by CCleaner.

The settings were set to "wipe free space". This creates several files which, in my case, sit on my D drive.
They disappear after a few days.

So mystery solved.

Thanks for your help.
