    Hello back TPU!

    Yesterday I saw two files(msvcp100.dll and msvcr100.dll) in my C:\ disk folder. What does this mean? I know this two files should be in C:\Windows or C:\Windows\System32 or somewhere in C:\Windows but not in main disk folder. I deleted this files but files appeared again today. Is this a virus or maybe an application? How can I check this?

    Those files shouldn't be in C:\ and they won't work in that location, they need to be in the windows directory (system32 i think). Rename or delete them and see if any of your programs stop working.

    some program may be placing them there. if you have any exe's you run straight from C:, that could cause it
