Excessive Google cache files

Hi everyone, every time i use CC cleaner i see the vast majority of files being from the Google cache and this happens when i barely use the computer.

Anti virus scans come up with nothing. Is this normal?

Thank you

You may have 'adware' or 'foistware' that most Anti-virus products won't detect.

Download AdWareCleaner AdwCleaner Download to your desktop
1.Right-click on adwcleaner.exe and select Run As Administrator to launch the application.
2.Click on Delete button.
3.Confirm each time with OK.
4.Your computer will be rebooted automatically. A text file will open after the restart. Please post the content of that logfile in your reply.
Note: You can find the logfile at C:\AdwCleaner[Sn].txt as well - n is the order number.
