They are various folders and files used by the system. You can find the same type of apocryphal file and folder names with many software. They produce those names, I trust, randomly, in order to give an individual identity for their software, and PROTECT the information for it.

If in doubt, run two or three antivirus / malware programs. Bad ones don't usually get that far, they usually rename a legitimate file.
