Hello!

I have a quick question, regarding AdwCleaner. I was doing a routine scan and it had found these via Folders:

 

***** [ Folders ] *****

Deleted: C:\ProgramData\{1FBF6C24-C1fD-4101-A42B-0C564F9E8E79}.log
Deleted: C:\ProgramData\{2A87D48D-3FDF-41fd-97CD-A1E370EFFFE2}.log
Deleted: C:\ProgramData\{B46BEA36-0B71-4A4E-AE41-87241643FA0A}.log
Deleted: C:\ProgramData\{E1646825-D391-42A0-93AA-27FA810DA093}.log

 

I went ahead and removed them, without really thinking it over. One of the logs originates from a Cyberlink program, I believe. (Which was reported as a false positive here.) Would anyone happen to know where the other logs originate from? Since they've been stupidly deleted, will this cause issues? I've done an sfc/scannow and hard drive tool check, to be safe.

 

Everything seems to be working fine.

As a side note, these folders/logs can still be found within the Quarantine folder. I looked at them all; they all seem to originate from CyberLink Media Suite Essentials (a pre-installed program that came with the PC.) They all say the same thing:

[Application]
Name=PowerDirector12
Version=12.0
Company=CyberLink
Lang=0409
[ResponseResult]
ResultCode=0

If these are things that can (or should be) restored, do let me know. If that's the case, I may need some tips on how to do so.

 

Cheers,

-L.

One last side note: some of the logs differentiate. The Name= region will sometimes state  "PowerDVD12" or "CyberLink Media Suite12". So, again, likely all originating from the same program. Maybe after it had updated? I  don't really use CyberLink, so maybe doing a complete uninstall would be best.

 

Cheers,
