They are system files, i think of system restore.
U can hide them my going to folder options>view> and make sure hide system protected files is checked.
That should solve ur prob.

download and use 'ccleaner'. if it is junk, it will be removed.
also scan ur pc with adaware plus ewido, in safe mode. if its malware, it will be detected.
if u still feel worried, post ur hijackthis logfile here or at www.hijackthis.de for analysis.

I think they might have been created by System Mechanic... Did you install that software? If you no longer have it, you can delete it I think...(But perhaps you may want to create a System Restore Point before trying this)...

System Restore files are not stored in the root directory AFAIK, there is a hidden folder called SystemRestore or something like that...

If ya remove them your system will not be restore completely if u choose to restore it.
