:thumbsup: Hi,
this is my very first posting to this forum so if I've put this in the wrong spot, please let me know, and I will put it somewhere else! Also, I hope I did the title and description correctly.

When I go to start, run, and type in %temp%, (which gets rid of annoying temporary files) I can't seem to get rid of these two:

~dff3de.tmp 2 kb tmp file
hpodvd09.log 196kb log file

should I be concerned about this? I'm not sure why I can't get rid of them

Hi help! and welcome to BC

Those files are most likely in use by one of your programs and can't be deleted for that reason. I wouldn't be concerned with those. With most anti-virus programs, if you right click on a file you will have the option to scan it.
