    004 is not a standard file extension.

    See <A target="_blank" HREF=http://www.cknow.com/ckinfo/acronyms/fileextensions.htm>here</A> for a *full* list of known extensions.

    These appear to be files that are connected to some shareware or freeware with "Adware".
    Found the following about AdGateway

    "About the AdGateway
    The AdGateway is the first service to allow software developers the ability to incorporate dynamic advertising within their applications. The AdGateway delivers dynamic advertising in a variety of industry standard formats to the desktop for display within or Windows 95 and 98 applications.

For more information about the AdGateway suite of technologies visit Conducent's Web site or call (717)540-1978."

    Looks like you have some new "Adware" type of software.
