Unknown FilesFile ContentsFile Listing by DateHi,
 I just noticed there are a bunch of files in the root directory of C drive in SBS2003 server.
 When I opened in WORD, as seen above, it does not make sense at all.
 There are 4,291 of these and first file date is 11/2/2013 and still being created.
 Can you tell me what this is? I uploaded one of the actual files.

Thanks.

Disable the Insight upload feature in your SEP antivirus install and delete those files.  You may also find more of them in another folder too.

Yes I do have Norton End Point Protection, but
What do you mean by Disable the Insight upload feature?

Is the above good?
If those files are created by Norton, then can I delete those files then?
