very late response to following thread

Specs: Windows 7
This response to thread http://www.computing.net/answers/se... might be VERY LATE (05-2014 :D) - however, the web has somewhat as to zero information what this really is. Here is the answer:
Those files are CCleaner sleeper cells, the numbers represent a hash tag and the zzz...ZZZZ..ZZZ acronyms are just stupid gibberish added by the piriform devs. Here is an example of what this might look like:
3590F75ABA9E485486C100C1A9D4FF06ZZZ...Z...ZZ...Z
Do not panic if you finds folders like these on your PC as they belong to the program CCleaner and a task that you yourself started (deleting free MFT spaces)
However- if you happen to be as so clever to interrupt the application, it might not be able to delete these TEMPFolders in the process - leaving them behind with no option to delete them without advanced tasking.
Solution: Use google and search for "Unlocker" - the first entry is your pick!
This nifty freeware tool will help you to overcome the admin rights needed to delete and move it into the recycle bin in a matter of seconds - delete them and your problem is solved!
This was no virus and you never had one - involving this problem - that is.

As far as I can see that original post was 2011 rather than 2014.

Just a tip for the future:
When a new post is intended for general information it is best to briefly describe the issue as part of the post, with an appropriate title. Not everyone will bother to click links to see what it was all about, particularly those with the same problem. It will also help folk googling in.

Always pop back and let us know the outcome - thanks

Sorry to read that you misunderstood my post. 05-2014 was referring to my response of the original thread, which was authored in 2011, so there is no mistake here.
As for google it works just fine. People who will and/or have encountered the stated issue trying to find a solution on the web will find this post on page 1 of the search results, no matter what they enter to try and find something regarding it.
I appreciate your concerns though.

OK, I've struck out the date part of my #2.

Bit surprised to hear that Google finds this post but if that's what you've found then fine. I only wanted to be sure your efforts didn't get missed.
