Looks like this thread is dead, but here's some info about the boost_interprocess folder which I also found in C:\ProgramData.

 

On my system, it gets created, and is locked by, the Cloudfogger app. Cloudfogger is(was) an app to automatically encrypt the contents of folders synced with cloud storage services. Unfortunately, there has been no activity from them (see their blog) since December 2012, and they are not responding to contact.

I'm not saying that their software is purposefully malicious because I have no evidence, other than the creation of that folder, that anything untoward is happening. However, bearing in mind the lack of development and response, I have uninstalled Cloudfogger which has allowed me to delete the boost_interprocess folder, and, without Cloudfogger running, it doesn't come back.

Hi jharps,

 

The boost_interprocess folder is often seen together with potentially unwanted toolbars or other types of browser add-ons that arrives to the computer together with many free programs.
