    Press Windows key, and type Disk. If you are using different language it may be called something different. But you want disk cleanup. Disk Cleanup should appear at top. Right-click and run as administrator, and choose to clean up everything. Do this for C drive, and D drive. It may get rid of it, or may not, but it is worth a try.

    It sounds like it could be Windows Update. I've seen files and folders with strange names in D: as well.

    It's really annoying. I let Windows do whatever it wants with C:, but D: is where I want to set up my own folder structure and it can't leave that alone either.

    Just upload it to a image site and type the address with a space or two so it's not a live link. If you ever need to do it again.

    It looks like system restore files, right on one of them, and select properties post what it says.:D

    did you turn system restore off, if you did it would empty restore=0 bytes, I believe that is what they were, and yes safe to delete:D

    I have a few of those kinds of files too (though not the same names), and System Restore has never been turned on - it's disabled by default in a clean install of Win10. Or at least it was for me.

    I just had to chuckle when I went to look at the pic the OP posted.
    Seems TinyPic.com is routing something through DoublePimp ad network and PeerBlock blocked it.
