So I have this 'Temp' files in my windows folder and I dont know if this is a malware or something
inside the 'Temp' folder I have many subfolders and applications with names
here are some of the names: Folders:1.6CB1F574-F625-49C1-830B-8C54F5DE8BA7
2.7D8D418C-8391-40B8-9B00-29A179B9D84B

3.AF6666CB-F4D6-49ED-B8E7-BD13942C7C82

applications:1.{1DFE796C-0E04-4A77-86F6-5ECE11DE1951}

2.{1F04A3EA-17A2-4A65-BD35-1BAAF1E1848C}

3.{2AF06F42-95AE-4916-AFB3-6945EB6CF1A2}

can somebody tell me if these are malwares or something
I cant risk getting this laptop infected
also I think there are more than 100 of these files and theres those tmp files:TS_8668, TS_87E0
those two are just one part of many, also, theres this "LOCAL" and "LOCAL1" executable windows command files and I dont want to run them coz theyre probably a virus or something
my online realtime protector is Windows defender
Most of the folders have "dismhost" Applications and dimhost.dll

Temp or %temp% folder is used by the Windows OS to store the temporary files which are created during the OS is running. It also stores partial downloaded files, update packages when applications are updated. That being said malware do use this location to hide themselved among the many temp files and folders. If you are unsure, please, run a scan with MBAM and report me the result. 

Regards, 
Valinorum
