Hi there! Because the forum you originally posted in is for beginners trying to learn the basics of Photoshop, I moved your question to the Photoshop General Discussion forum, where you'll get more specialized help.
The first thing to do is right click on the icon you use to launch PS and click on properties. Look at the target is it Photoshop. You will not be able to find that folder your looking for unless you change Windows Folder options View Tab to show hidden files and folders. For the one your looking for has a hidden attributes. The files being extracted seem to be Photoshop plug-ins and require Photoshop to be restarted.
RarSFX5 seems to be malware and from what I see it might have replaced your Photoshop Filters.
Do a google search on RarSFX5
it was correct, it referred to Photoshop.exe
A little new devellopment has occurred however.
I had yesterday cleaned up my C-drive to a total open space of 1.2 gig, but today it's only 117mb, while the only program I was using was Photoshop.
What should I do?
and how do I change the windows folders options to show hidden folders?
I've tried updating Malware Bytes, but each time I try to update, it crashes... ?
See what file are new on you C: drive. Search on file which have dates the are just a few day old. Photoshop creates large temp files if Photoshop was not shut down properly it is possible the old temp file are still on your disk. Also Run a virus check. I would still be worried about you other screen capture with the window has a PS icon but WinRAR title and content. Its alarming for it looks like WinRAR was extracting Photoshop's normal filters from a RAR archive. Its Alarming for when I did a google search on folder name malware was indicated RarSFX5
how can I search the C-drive in that manner? I mean, I have barely learned how to search by specific names?
Where are the Photoshop Temp files located? and what is the best way to delete them?
and how can I remove the temp-files from previous photoshop shutdowns?
Open the file explorer use the organize pull-down and click on Folder and Search options. In the Folder Option window use the View tab and un-check any checked hide boxes and under hidden turn on show hidden files, folders and drive then click OK. Now back in File explorer point to c: Then in the upper right corner click on the search magnifying glass add a filter for a date range and the press the enter key. Sort the result by size and delete any large temp files found.
Do an other search type something like *RarSFX5* in the search field amd press enter.
The Turkish winrar tells me you have some sort of malware problem which has to be taken care of first.
