I will give them the information this Sunday and get the actual folder contents then.

The folder name was the company name and phone number (Company Name Net 1-800-...-....    where "..." were actual numbers) and includes about 6 or 7 files
I only remember ccleaner.exe,
a "company name" batch file (contained lots of set...=%temp%... etc),
a "company name" text file (did not look at contents),
the hosts file (with several pages of redirects),
a "company name" exe file

I renamed the folder and each filename to append to the end: "- DO NOT OPEN"

I cold booted the machine, rechecked to ensure the renamed folder / files retained the new names;
 and finally did a quick check for new and hidden folders (then reset to do not show hidden folders/files) 

I then left.

Update:  I was not able to get by there today as expected.  No calls from them either so I will try again

Ok, so they found another solution:  They purchased a Chromebook to replace this laptop.

So I guess we can mark this one "closed"?

Thank You,
