    Strange empty Folders?

      Dell XPS L702X - Windows 7 Home Premium SP1 64 Bit - IE8 - McAfee Security Center

       

      With Hidden Files and Folders showing - in the Location C:\Users\User Name\AppData\Local - I have 54 empty Folders all with Alpha-Numeric Names such as....

       

      {00F218BD-26FB-4C40-B58D-3E9BDE7091A6}

      {1B60291D-9B78-40B1-972B-7232AEF65899}

      {1CC52294-D006-48EC-8B05-893D2C7E83A5}

      {2A1BF5D2-CBEC-4E51-933D-F5A1215A276D}

       

      It would seem from their Dates that one - sometimes two - of these are created every day

       

      There is no indication as to which Program is creating these empty Folders

       

      Apart from Windows Updates I have not Installed any Software since getting this Laptop six weeks ago

       

      It has been suggested to me that these Folders are something to do with McAfee

       

      Can anyone conform this?

       

      Thanks
