    Tried it with Avast. Didn't detect it as virus.

    Ooo! It should. Back up all your 'sacred' data anyway.

    But the pre-installed version of my windows is windows 8, and if I refresh my system then my win 8.1 will be gone and i have to download it over again. I don't want to lose my win 8.1 How do I deal with this?

    @David,
    The option in Winpatrol only searches for the executable program, for example: photoshop.exe, not just any folder or file.

    Don't refresh yet. If you refresh your PC, they will still be there.Reset will practically re-install your Windows 8 and will remove them.
    I assume that you cannot delete these 2 folders, am I right ? Let us try to remove them first.

    Download:PendMoves and MoveFile


    1. Unzip to desktop
    2. Open Admin command prompt and type cd C:\Users\USERNAME\desktop
    3. Type: movefile.exe C:\xxx "" where xxx is the name of the folder, press <ENTER> and do again for the second folder.
    4. type: pendmoves <ENTER> should list these 2 folders pending to be deleted.
    5. reboot your PC

    I stand corrected about WinPatrol.
    Thank you.
