I use Windows XP. Suddenly my hard drive is almost filled up. It had 50% open space 2 months ago. I clean my computer up through Disk Cleanup every week and the temp files are checked for cleaning. I also run 3 different spyware programs frequently, Spybot, Spycatcher and Pest Patrol. I found hundreds of temp files saved starting 10-30-05 up to today. All the temp files are the same size at 8966 kb and sometimes they are saved 20 times in 1 day. The file name is "fnm". I tried to open one to see where it came from but have been unable to. I don't want to delete them until I know if it would cause a problem and where it is coming from. Any help would be appreciated. Thank you
