BIT*.TMP files

Every time I go online 6 files(BIT6.TMP/ BIT1.TMP/ BIT190.TMP/ BIT 307.TMP/ BITD.TMP and BIT3.TMP) of exactly 10.582 kb are created in my Temp folder and updated every couple of minutes. Anybody with bright ideas about these files? Maybe some internet optimizer programm I installed?

Or Automatic Updates downloading an update?

In reply to: BIT*.TMP files

Hint.

not the case

In reply to: Or Automatic Updates downloading an update?

I always disconnect automatic updates(antispyware, antivirus, windows, firewalls etc). Although it's possible that some software is updating withpout knowing it, it's rather improbable.

sorry

sorry, don't understand what you're talking about. There seems no "SVC" command on my pc. How do I do this?
Thanks for the trouble I'm causing, but these bit.tmp files are driving me mad.

It's a command line command.

In reply to: sorry

Here's more.

Press start, run, type in CMD and press enter.

Now type in the command as supplied to reveal what's up and share it here. To copy from that box, just highlight what the output is and press enter. It's now in the clipboard for you to paste in your reply.

See "BITS"?

In reply to: tasklist

There's your background downloader. It's part of the Microsoft automatic updater.

It's not turned off according to what's running.

Microsoft automatic updater turned off

In reply to: See "BITS"?

I've got my microsoft automatic updater turned off, so how is it possible that it's working, this "background downloader"? When I turn it off it should be off. How do I turn it off? How do I turn this svchost.ex PID 804 off without affecting other processes?

windows media player

In reply to: It's "part of", not is, the whole enchilada.

Bob,

after running "services.msc" I stopped all services that got something to do with "automatic updates", without any success.
After consulting sveral pages on "10.582 kb" files, programmes as Windows Media Player(installed) and Roxio(not installed) and the word "music" are mentioned. I disabled all references about the internet in the toolbox of WMP 10. Again without any possitive results. But I think I've got to find the solution there.

thanks,

page with bit*.tmp files

In reply to: It's "part of", not is, the whole enchilada.

I've found a page (http://marizoka-pimentel. vilabol.uol.com.br/ Log-parte1.html) where a similar file of exactly the same size is named. Maybe you can draw conclutions from this page. Here's a summary:

Spyware

In reply to: This maybe related

Peter,

I've tried all kind of updated spyware programmes(cwshredder, adaware, spybot, xoftspy), but they didn't solve my problem.

Thanks,
Andr

Did you read ALL of the post?

In reply to: Spyware

Also try Microsoft's AntiSpyware - it has picked up what others haven't - and always look at the settings to make sure you do a proper scan.
Also go to systems internals - they have a program which tracks what is actually being up/down loaded by your computer - its called TCPview - its very basic but tells you what programs are doing what over your connection.

Did it all

In reply to: Did you read ALL of the post?

After reading ALL information on the page you suggested, running hijackthis and all the other software mentioned on the page and deleting suspicious processes things haven't changed. The f.... BIT.TMP are still there.
I'm getting nervous, especially because you wisely suggested that my problems with my internet speed could be related to this f.... BIT.TMP files.

Bit.TMP Overlload in Temporary File...Virus or Other Problem

In reply to: Did it all

My temporary file keeps generating massive amounts of Bit.TMP files (last was 180MB). How do I stop this. I did multiple virus scan and came up with nothing. I also did a RUN Net Stop Bits. My machine is getting hit hard and fast with Bit.Tmp files for no apparent reason. And they are not coming from the Internet. They are coming directly from my computer about 20MB's every ten minutes. This has gotta stop. I need suggestions before my system has a Heart Attack. Thanks.

just curious

In reply to: BIT*.TMP files

are you using a P2P program or do you convert a lot of video files?

the reason i ask:
bit=bitrate
bit=bittorrent

P2P

In reply to: just curious

I don't convert any video files.
I use emule 1.1d, but these f..... BIT.TMP files appear even when I'm not using it. These files appear at the moment the internet connection is established.
I've tried all kind of spyware detection software(adaware, spybot, xoftspy, CWShredder, hijacker)
, but they don't find anything suspicious.

With that, I leave it to you.

In reply to: P2P

It's a problem I learned long ago that I can't help P2P users. I don't want to sound offensive, but trying to cure P2P symptoms while the user is using P2P is a waste of time.

This is not an insult. It's just that it's not a good investment of my time.

Bob

not correct

In reply to: With that, I leave it to you.

THIS CANNOT BE, BY ANY MEANS, NO WAY, A PROBLEM RELATED TO P2P, BECAUSE I HAD THIS PROBLEM LONG BEFORE MY SON INSTALLED THIS PROGRAME. MY PROBLEMS BEGAN LONG BEFOR THAT.
I KNOW THAT SOME PEOPLE DON'T APPROVE THIS PRACTICE, BUT BLAME THEM FOR ALL COMPUTER PROBLEMS IS TAKING THINGS TOO FAR.

Collapse -
My choice here.

In reply to: not correct

I noted why. To reiterate, I've found P2P users to be not a good investment of time fixing issues like this. When they figure it out and get off the P2P, sometimes we find a fix. Sometimes we get to reload the OS since its damaged goods.

It also appears your keyboard broke too.

My keyboard broke?

it works fine, thanks.
All the same many thanks for your wasted precious time!

If P2P were the problem, the number of hits on google would be enormous, because most peolple I know use some kind of P2P.

You're welcome.

In reply to: My keyboard broke?

Glad to see your keyboard is working proper again.

The P2P issue is my choice. Best of luck finding it.

What an id

In reply to: You're welcome.

What's your problem with P2P?
Legal? Ethical? Technical? I'm getting intrigued.
You're american, aren't you?

Only hope you don't drink alcohol, neither smoke or take drugs and do a lot of healthy exercises. Otherwise, one day a doctor might say that it isn't worth the trouble trying to help you.

I have no problem with it.

It does no good to be fixing a machine when some other software has other ideas.

THANK YOU(didn't break down again)

I'll try your idea and look for a hijackthis forum.
Yesterday I checked my freind's pc and there's no HKLM\software\microsoft\windows\currentversion\bits

This is what I did and it worked perfectly.

Again many thanks very your patience, especially Bob's.
I'm no computer-freak so what is obvious for you guys is like reading Sanskrit to me.

Again thank you very much and I'm very sorry that you wasted such time.
