What are MFC Applications?

By PENGUINSRULE ·
I found these popunder applications in my directory - ad.exe and view.exe and they are in a directory called Orbit and they are MFC applications? Safe to delete? I'm planning on deleting them anyway - something about these things don't seem right..
thanks

MFC applications means that they use Microsoft Foundation Class Library...C++ programming tools
So you can treat those executable as any others. If they were not installed by a legitimate program that you use, then you can delete them.

After you delete them, go get AdAware from Lavasoft (it's got a free version). Those sound like they were installed by spyware.

I already ran AdAware, and it didn't find it.. I then deleted the files. Thanks though..
