65,536 Window Temp files loading?

Unread postby Secrent » September 30th, 2011, 9:32 pm

I have had a 6 mo. ongoing problem with something creating exactly 65,536 (each time) temp. files, in the Windows Temp folder:
They are listed as: TMP994A.tmp. 9/29/2011 9:28pm TMP File 0 KB and progress numerically and alphabetically. It appears to be on a timer, as it can be 2 wks. without loading, sometimes a few days, and recently it reloads soon after I delete them. It takes about 10 mins. to delete them & empty the recycle bin in Safe Mode, doing it on the desktop can take 20-30 mins.
I have run Malwarebytes, Norton, varies registry cleaners with no luck catching whatever it is. I have googled it without any direct hits as to what it might be. Some suggest a program of some sort doing it. My Windows startup started taking 2-3 mins. after this started. I am at wits end and may just go ahead with a clean & install, but I dread the drudgery of reloading programs etc.
Any help will be greatly appreciated.

By posting just a description of your problems it is likely that your topic will be passed by and you will not receive the help you're looking for.

We need to know what's running on your computer so that we can give you appropriate instructions.

May I draw your attention to THIS topic, which you should have read, and which tells you what we need you to post so that we can help you.

This thread will now be closed.

If you still need help, please start a new thread with:-
  • DDS logs (DDS.txt & Attach.txt)
  • Details of the problems you're experiencing.

If for any reason you can't run DDS, please let us know in your post.
