I would definitely recommend downloading and running MalwareBytes Anti-Malware and run a full scan on the computer.

You might be able to remove them with the process found HERE , but it does involve using the command prompt, so if you're uncomfortable with that then I would not.

download a hirem boot cd or from a know anti virus software company a rescue cd or make a bootable usb stick.
on your pc make sure you have an anti virus running if it is see if it expired or the engine is old. i would do a full anti virus scan of your pc and his ext hard drive.

thanks i will try both methods and report back as soon as possible, im scanning the pc with malware bytes now and testing the process of how to remove a unnamed files

@hedwar
im confused in the removal process of the un named files, first of all the unnamed files are in the "My computer" and second is the Desktop, the explanation is a bit confusing
