There used to be a problem with Nero creating a lot of IDX (Index) files in different folders (up to 1000 of these files). Have you been using Nero lately?

The IDX files are harmless enough, Eilat, you can safely delete those, but I don't know about those other CAOO and TDBIDXL files. Try running the usual spyware scans with Adaware and Spybot S&D, see if they pick those files up.
