Did you install any drivers downloaded from the manufacturers site. If yes, the folder may be a temporary folder used during the driver installation

EDIT: I think you may be infected. What anti virus do you have?
Google

On a side note,
Update your System Specs

Carn't see it being an infection, avast 5.0 free Av, brings nothing up when scanning the folder.

But i did install driver's for the network printer on this computer.
The printer is connected to a XP machine, so i had to install the driver's for the lexkmark printer on this windows 7 computer.

So you may have something here glasdon, could this be the folder related to this..

Sorry my signature is slightly wrong, its windows 7 64 bit

Those folders are on many computers, including my own. I believe it has something to do with System Restore.

Can you fill in your System Specs? It would be easier to trouble shoot with the details.
You can get the details from Speccy

Just follow the link Update your System Specs to update the specs

Thanks jonathan,

I think i have found out what it relates to, about 10 days ago i was asked to do a "combofix" scan.
But when i installed it, it would not run on this computer, i think combofix is for xp and 2000 or something like that.

The reason combofix was downloaded, was that MBAM was picking something up at first, but this just needed to be ignored my MBAM in the first place.
It was just the " ability to make changes to active desktop is disabled and MBAM is attempting to enable it . If you don't want to see this again tell MBAM to ignore the scan result .

So i think this folder is the one combofix produced, i will have to post back on the forum just to check if it can be deleted safely
