My own C:\Windows\Temp folder has just a few entries that seem to be log entries, eg
MpCmdRun.log is a log for Windows Defender.
WGAErrLog.txt is a log of Windows Genuine Advantage, and
ZLT01a91.TMP where the a91 are random characters are logs of my ZoneAlarm firewall.
Do you have similar logs, and do you use ZoneAlarm and any virus/spyware scanners?
I have large number of very big TMP files (averaging 300mb) that appear in Win\Temp, with no applications open. They can appear in a very short period of time (a couple of hours), and I have to boot into Safe Mode w/command prompt to delete them. In a short period of time, they can obliterate as much as 30 gb of disk space. Is there a way to determine what program or utility is writing these files? And... if found, is there a way to prevent them from being written?
I'm running XP Pro, version 2002, SP2.
I would really appreciate any help or suggestions at this point. Thanks for reading this plea for help.
