I have a temp folder that I can't remove

Jul 25, 2018 6:19AM PDT

I ran a scan and a folder I haven't seen before pops up. When I searched what the folder was nothing came up. The file name is nsa70E3.TEMP. Does any one know what this is? And how do I remove it? It does have an application extension named vi2.dll.

Simple to slightly advanced ways.

1. Boot SAFE MODE (how is on google) and then open Windows File Explorer to find and delete. Deleting files and files is Windows 100 skills so I'll stop here.

2. Boot another OS that does not obey file permissions. Use a newer version than what I mentioned at

- How do you mean "when I searched ... nothing came up" ?
- What file has the name nsa70E3.TEMP ?
- In what folder is that file located?
- What has an exention named "vi2.dll" ? It doesn't make really sense to tell that a file nsa70E3.TEMP.vi2.dll has an extension vi2.dll.
- Why can't you remove what? What error message?
