I found a text log on my pc,i think it has somthing to do with a MS update but the wording is very iffy from what i can make out,it goes on about turning things on and off and "cloaking things" i can't post all the text because it is to big but this is just a little sample :

the folder this is inside off is called "863755349c90f1c731b94b392a7605" and i cant find any MS update with that name,but it does mention MS further into the log,anyone have any ideas as what this could be and if it would be ok to delete?.

Yes, you can safely delete it.

I had the same file on my E drive & deleted it a few days ago without any problems.

IE7 install creates a folder name consisting of random numbers - perhaps it was that.
