First, some background about my computer: I use Windows 98, I regularily run Ad-Aware, Spybot, A-squared, and Spy-Subtract; I also have the free version of Zone Alarm Firewall. I have recently had Wareout downloaded without my consent on my system. At first it caused many problems but after a ran a scan with Spybot, most problems went away. Although Wareout itself is still on my harddrive.
Now this new thing I have noticed seems unusuall and I'm not sure if it's related to Wareout.
I have noticed that anytime I upload a new digital photo of mine into one of my photo folders, that shortly after, those same photos will end up in my Temp Folder (C:windows/temp) with a new file name (the name becomes a string of letters and digits).
I do not personally rename them and move them, it is being done automatically. After they are moved, I delete them, because I dont think they should be in my Temp folder; and once I delete them they will not return, so this file transfer and renaming only ever happens once per photo.
If anyone has any comments about this and what I should do, if anything, I would appreciate it, Thank you.
