Well, what is in a name? right?
I mean, anyone can rename something to anything.
Folder names like you mentioned are used by Microsoft Update
as temp folders, so things "fit" a normal pattern; but, anyone with
permission can name things as they wish.
Do you believe this is causing something to run?
Do you have a .exe? If so, when you go into the properties does
the info check out, particularly the digital signature ?
You are probably chasing shadows from running autoupdates.
