I have noticed that several of my drives have multiple folders with
randomly generated names like  < c1d507a65a5b840fd01d >

Each of these folders contains three files - $shtdwn$.req :
mrt.exe._p : mrtstub.exe.

These look like something that has been generated by an abnormal
shutdown ($shtdwn$ is a bit of a clue), and I wonder if I can safely
delete them?

Looking for mrtstub.exe in Google brings up a load of alarming
messages indicating that it might be malware, that running it might
delete all my data ..... etc.

I would like to get rid of it - can I safely do so?
