It is true anything can create those temp files anything from Windows running, certain applications, installation programs for applications, general use of the computer, and anyrthing else that runs on a computer. Names of Temp Files are specific to one computer, and quite honestly I am not a know it all, and you post on a forum that deals with computer technical support. So by all means you posted here asked a question, and wanted to receive help.
Also I am not a know it all, and I take great offense to that insult. I would advise that when you post take into consideration where you are posting, and how you are posting.
Also as an IT professional, I would highly recommend dropping Symantec and move onto a much better solution.
Also your end users should not be getting these popup's in a properly maintained corporate environment Security Center would not be allowed to be ran, and the proper setup and installation of Norton / Symantec Enterprise Server that automatically pushes out definitions would keep all systems updated, and the popup's from reoccurring. Your IT Department or you need to re-evaluate how your network is set up, and the roles the user accounts are given. If your computer users are administrative, gthen that will be issue that you need to solve and do it fast. No one but Domain Managers should be admins on the network, and they should have 2 accounts. One for General use when they are not maintaining the network and infrastructure, and one for domain administration.
Also in your post about this issue you provided no evidence or links in your original message, which would have lead to a more friendly discussion about the issue and about the company that is Symantec and how their programs are not very useful. So in the future if you want friendly discussion on something, and instead of advise post evidence and post about what you want to discuss other wise on these forums you will be treated as someone seeking help to solve a issue that you are having.
