:thumbsup: to BC pinkrosetc.

If the file is in your C:\Windows\Temp folder then it is 'fair game' for deletion. Neither Windows nor any other application would put important files in the temp folder.

AVG is an excellent free anti-virus program but should be supported by anti-spyware programs a firewall and the occasional online scan to keep your system malware free. See the BC compendium of recommended Freeware for options:
Recommended Freeware


Soltek QBIC, Pentium 4 3.0GHz, 512MB RAM, 200GB SATA HDD, ATI Radeon 9600XT 256MB, Netgear 54Mb/s WAP, ridiculously expensive Satellite Broadband
