Could you let us know the path to the file and the file name, also where it came from, if known? And the specific error message when you try to delete it. I could give you something that would delete it, but I would feel better if I knew what it was.

You may need to set Full Control permissions for that folder under the Security tab in Properties for that folder.

the thing is I dunno how to set the folder to full permissions... I have two users which I have no recollection of memories making and never even named any of those users for my computer.... and those users in my computer have special permissions which are named CREATOR OWNER and IIS_IUSRS and the rest of the users including (J-pc, Administrator, TrustedInstaller, and SYSTEM) have the rest of the permissions other than special permissions.  Is this normal?

If you are the only one using this PC, it is safe to set all those users to Full Control and you should be able to delete the file.

I use

Unlocker

for those really stubborn files that refuse to let go.

Make sure you download this version ---> Unlocker 1.9.1<------, not 1.9.2

This is a shot in the dark; have you installed or used anything to do with Bitdefender? Googling tmp0000000
showed a lot of hits referring to Bitdefender.

If it's in that folder...all you should have to do is dump your cache/temp files junk.

 

Download/run..TFC .

I tried running TFC well sure does clear everything but the file appears again.... strange... after using TFC again it still stays there I dunno what to do... Actually I searched what bezhukov stated and his post might be true. I recently downloaded Bitdefender and had some troubles after installing due to the fact that I installed bitdefender while not uninstalling ESET in the first place... I'm referring to my last topic before this, and the problems seem to make my computer not save any settings for bitdefender and resets after rebooting windows. Plus I had done some bad mistakes on my part. Including using Autoruns to delete the remaining eset entries and that really didn't work at all since that made my computer slower on bootup as well. However... Unlocker doesn't seem to start at all when I open it. I dunno what to do now

Try File Assassin

Sorry about the Unlocker endorsement. It's been awhile since I've used it.
