Question another q

i know its gonna get repetitive but... since installing service pack 2 i've got loads of .exe files like 99732.exe & 1969.exe in the Windows folder.

anyone know what they are and whether i should keep them or not?
they keep trying to access the net.

cheers

If you had a pirate copy of XP and still downloaded SP2 you in for some trouble.
If not, then you should maybe download Microsoft Antispyware to scan your system.
Numbered executables are not likely healthy.
