Temp Files in Windows\Temp

Postby oma53 » Thu Jun 18, 2009 11:08 pm

Hello,

I did a search for temp files in this forum but I came up with nothing regarding this issue.
Could someone with AVG please check this out for me?
With your internet open and a browser open, do you get the following file type in your C:\Windows\Temp folder?

f5d61231-0cc4-44cc-9c95-73c930761387.tmp
all zero bytes
(approx 5 to 15 in the temp folder at times)

This is not a problem. I am trying to track down where these files are coming from and I have narrowed it to possibly being AVG. These files have increased in number recently is what started my search for there origin.

Thank You.

I found what is causing this.
When I turn off Webshield and Linkscanner together, the temp files stop.
I assume it was a update that changed these features, hence the increase in number of files in my windows\temp folder.
Thank You.
