Hello, I can't find infomation on these 3 .tmp files.

SASAB.tmp - SASAC.tmp - SASAD.tmp

Also, when I scan for junk files, there are a whole bunch of new files I find. The filenames are 4 letters starting with AC (i.e. ACBD, ACCD, etc) and a few have one number after them.

I have a feeling that this isn't normal. Below is info about my computer.

- Gateway 830GM Desktop, 3GHz Intel Pentium 4, 2GB Ram, 500GB Hard Drive
- Windows XP SP3
- Internet Explorer 8


Thank you.

I think I just figured it out. They might be related to the "SuperAntiSpyware" program, but it's weird that I have never seen them before.

Update: I just stopped the service that is associated with "SuperAntiSpyware" and re-scanned and tried to delete these files and they still won't budge. I'm going to restart my computer again right now..... be right back....

Ok, I just rebooted then re-scanned, and the files weren't found. I believe that I fixed the problem.

Hi -
What did you scan with to find these "odd" files ??
Is this a DDS or OTL scan output, or are you just searching for "hidden files" ??

Thank You -

I used the junk file scanner that 'revouninstall' has in it. I think the resolved the issue with the 3 files I was initially concerned about.

I attached a screen capture of the new files revo finds. If someone could tell me what is creating these files that would be awesome.

Thank you.

Hi -
If all your "normal" files are usually backed up then try TFC Cleaner by Old Timer -
http://www.geekstogo.com/forum/files/download/187-tfc-temp-file-cleaner-by-oldtimer/
Download to desktop, Double click icon (black garbage can) , and reboot when finished -

I do this once a week and it removes tons of garbage files.
Also use System Tools > Disk Cleanup once a week prior to normal Defrag -

Regards -

Is your reply pertaining to the SASA.tmp files or the AC.tmp files?

I resolved the SASA.tmp file problem where I couldn't delete them, but I discovered a new problem while trying to resolve the original problem. Thank you for the link to the program, I will most definitely make good use of it, but just clearing the temp files isn't my problem anymore.

Something keeps generating temp files that all start with AC. AC1A1/AC1A2 etc etc AC1E1/AC1E2 etc etc.

I have no problem deleting these files, after i delete them they almost instaneously show up again. I'm trying to figure out what is creating these files. The files that are being created over and over again can be found in the screen caputres I provided above.

Thank you.
