    Hacked computer


    My computer has been hacked and the hacker has installed these files on the computer.


    In the folder "logs", the following files are installed:

    The folder "logs" contained more files earlier, but these have been erased. I believe that the hacker is trying to erase the traces since he realizes that I know that the computer is hacked.

    What is the purpose of these files?

    Thankful for your comments on this. I can e-mail you a printscreen of the files, but it was not possible to attach this file in this message.

    Best regards

    Relax, you are not being 'hacked'. The files you list were installed by Microsoft as part of the update KB4023057. The purpose of this update is to help prepare your PC for updating to the next version of Windows 10.
