    Sounds like a drive wipe in action. The process will lay down 'sleeper files' to zero out original file traces then deletes them when the process is done.
    This is normal but keep us posted on what's happening.

    Get Winpatrol Plus & analyze them.

    The Plus info on them is what you need to find out what they are.

    Open your Task Manager, I'm almost sure there's an application performing a Drive Wipe or Defrag or something.

    What's that application icon on your taskbar between file explorer and the Start orb?

    Malawarebytes has nothing to do with WinPatrol.
