Those were added by MSN messenger. There was a bug in an earlier beta version of MSN that caused those to be written to the root. They aren't malicious or hurting anything by being there.

If you haven't already done so, upgrade to the most current version

Oh okey, actually now they're deleted. I though i was infected by some virus or something by seeing so many strange files with a similar name. Thanks for the help though.
