I use Windows XP. I found out today that I was almost out of memory on the hard drive. It is usually at 50%. I use Cleandisk once a week and it includes temporary files. I also use Spybot, Spycatcher, and Pest Patrol several times a week. I found this site and used the 3 that were recommended, Panda. Houseclean and I forget the last one. I found over 1000 fnm.tmp files all of the same size(8966 kb) starting on 10-30-05. I tried to open up a fnm.tmp file but could not. I tried to delete all of the fnm.tmp files. I was able to delet them all except it will not let me delete the files from today. It says "can not delete file. It is being used by another person or program". There is also 1609 other misc files in the temp file. This fnm file is reproducing itself up to 20 times a day and seems to have something to do with either logging on or logging off as 3 more appeared after I restarted the computer a few minutes ago and was time stamped near the restart time. Until this gets solved can I delete ALL files or any type in the Temp file without hurting anything? I would appreciate any help you can give. Thank you
