The Application Directory is used to store user-specific data. Most software, but not all, will create a subfolder within that directory for information related to that program.

I got paranoid and reinstalled 3 the windows 3 times because I think I got a malware inside my laptop. I read the other threads from the forum about the firewalls, anti viruses and other stuff and the thing that did it is the microsoft essentials with the help of comodo firewall.

steps that I did:
first reinstall, tried if my sharing settings will changed, it got changed..
second reinstall, install windows via upgrade, sharing settings also got changed..
third reinstall, install windows via f8 safe mode core drivers, settings did not change..

after windows installation, I installed comodo firewall before the installation of laptop drivers..
furthermore, I never thought windows 7 had microsoft security essentials (personal antivirus/antimalware in genuine windows)

thank you sir, ma'am for the giving me information about the files that I mentioned
also, I got files with the filename mjcxxx.dll (mjc222.dll, mjc22.dll, mjc333.dll, ... , mjc99.dll) in my system32 within the second reinstallation, I don't know what are those files. I also forgot to mention from my last post that my windows updates automatically updates even if I set the update to "Notify...", and one svc host eat up to 40MB physical memory.

You've said it yourself so you won't mind me repeating it...You really are paranoid...that's not good. You're wasting a lot of time chasing ghosts. Everything you've described is normal and typical behavior for Windows, and I mean everything.

Why are you so worried about being hacked? Do you have military secrets or access codes to a million-dollar Swiss bank account or something?

Consider this. Many of us have been running Windows for years without ever catching a virus, simply by using common sense and following basic precautions (install a good free AV, keep your browser etc. up to date, take the time to configure things correctly, don't visit shady websites etc.).

Whenever there's a new virus or other malware gaining the attention of popular media, they make a big deal out of it and sometimes so-called experts will come up with doomsday predictions and warnings that do nothing but scare PC users who aren't technically competent. But on a day-by-day basis, unless you're simply stupid (I mean the general 'you') you're very unlikely to have a major problem anytime soon.

Stop reinstalling so much and trying to fix problems that aren't there. Just enjoy your computer.

It's true that we Windows folks can run into weird and bizarre issues anytime but usually that's just Windows itself, a harmless bug, a wrong setting, things we're here to help fix when they happen. Not everything unexpected is automatically OH NOES OMG AN INFECTION I'M GONNA LOSE ALL MY DATA WTF.

So take it easy, darn it!!

Upload those .dll files to http://www.virscan.org/ and have them scanned for malware.
