    Seems there is some sort of problem with security.
    What are those files? Is save to rename or delete them?


    EDIT: I had a look in my other PC with Win 10 and I could not find those files.
    Could someone, please, have a look in its Win 8.1 if those files exists on system?
    Please, replace in the above path the "AC" with your Windows User Name.

    Hi samuria,
    Thank you.
    I have been looking in Win 10 and Win 8.1 Clean Install and those Files /Folders are not present.
    I do not know where from are that files coming, so I deleted them and I do not see any problem.
    After that, I run SFC /scannow and there are corrupted files.
    I have completly disabled Windows Update Service and DISM is not working like this and also is not working with a Install Media DVD, so I will let it like that.
    I do not want to lose more time with Windows , I need to work, I can not spending all the time trying to fix Windows, I have some things more important to do.

    I just checked back and those files are back again.
    They belong to "Weather" and "News" Appīs.
    Uninstalling the Appīs from Start, the folders are beeing automatically deleted.
