Hey guys, I noticed a strange folder in my temp folder called BCLTMP containing subfolders with the names of my browsers. Inside of these folders are files that contain my saved favourites, visited urls and searches. After deletion of the BCLTMP folder it appears again after a while, sometimes after a day, a week or a month. After scanning my PC with all the tools I have (which didn't find much and didn't stop the folder appearing) I decided it might be normal.. Then I bought a new laptop which showed the same behavior within the same week I bought it. Nothing was installed on the laptop, no usb used, it had only been connected to my router. I have connected other laptops to my network in the past which showed the same behavior. Could this BCLTMP folder which seems to track my browser history be spyware/malware? No one else seems to have the folder. I am using Windows 10 pro on both devices. I tried scanning with malwarebytes, roguekiller, adwcleaner, eset sysrescue, exterminate it, spydllremover (which reports hidden rootkit, with processID, hidden), superantispyware. tdsskiller won't boot (redownloaded, same result) and comodo CCE crashes the computer and then refuses to boot. Note that the laptop with the BCLTMP folder is a clean windows 10 install with no installed software. My router reports synflood attacks from within and outside of my network, and it's firmware has been reinstalled by the isp just to be sure. Not much else to see there. How can I figure out what is happening to my devices, and what this folder is for?
It would be really good if the updating of the consul, and therefore subsequent updating of the Clients was much easier. I have to frequently check the download link to see if I have downloaded the patch, but recently there was a situation where the download file name didn't change albeit that there was new content. It is hard enough to keep Virus protection up to date, but when you don't know there are updates it is more difficult and potentially more risky for the users.
