Hello,

I have this folder which is located under program files "Qtlntmjrtlmphjp" and it's 6.61GB. I have no idea what it, can I delete it? What is the purpose of this file?

Thank you.

short answer, yes you can delete it!.
sort by date modified, you should be safe to delete all except today's one (it may be in use).  It looks as though it generates a new file each day.

They look like log files of some kind.
This is a symptom of a virus, but i've never seen any create DAT files with 2GB in size.
What is some of the text in the big file?

Looks like a virus. Run malwarebytes antimalware in safemode

I do not think that it is virus.

Instead, I notice that the HDD label is "Install Ubuntu", the .dat file should be some kinds server log files which are named by date.

nice observation... log files... the file path states "Log" as one of the parent folders.
You just reiterated what my first post was.

I do agree that it's unlikely to be a virus though because of the actual log file sizes... some of them are huge, they are not consitently the same size for each day.

faithless1 - as I suggested, sort the folder by date... when was the most recently modified one?
If it was any time prior to your original post, you will be safe to delete all of them as it generates new ones daily.   If there are newer ones than your original post, whatever is creating them is still running on your system.

You could send the Qtlntmjrtlmphjp folder to the recycle bin and restart.  If it doesn't reappear anytime in the next 24hrs, your job is done.

You could also search the registry (Run... regedit) for Qtlntmjrtlmphjp and let me know if it makes an appearance in the registry.
