Unknown file found in C:\ Drive

HP Laptop 14-ck0xxx
Microsoft Windows 10 (64-bit)

When I opened up file explorer and I went to the C:\ Drive I found this folder P00ULZ-B2B. I never downloaded anything like it. I also ran an advanced scan on the folder and it said that there were no threats so I opened the folder and it said a lot of stuff about SW and update. I don't know if this file is harmful or not. I would just like some advice on what it is.

Hello @Kyle632 

 

Most likely it is harmless. It if was a virus/malware it would not place itself on such an obvious place to see it. Malware nowadays is tricky and is trying to hide as much as possible.

 

It is some randomname folder.

  • If you right click the folder, can you choose Properties and tell me how big it is in size/capacity ?
