Unknown folder in windows.

Hi folks,I have a folder in the windows folder called "oqzu".Inside it there are 2 files one called oqzu.DAT and wu file.I think they look a bit dubious but wanted to know if anyone knew what they were before deleting them.I cant find anything that they might be related to.Anyone any clues please?Thanks.

Looks like a remnant of a WIndows Update file...Try running Windows update.

I looked at the date created seth.It was way back in january 2006.This was the only folder created that day.Other than that it was just some mp3's I downloaded.I'm wondering if this could be the remains of an old virus or something.

I ran windows update.No updates availiable.What makes you think it's windows related?Thanks.

wu file (windows update)

Create a current restore point.

Delete the fokder in question and re-boot. If you get error messages post back.

I've deleted the folder and rebooted and all seems fine.I'll keep it in the recycle bin for a few days just incase.
