I defragmented my c drive & learned there is a large file that can't be defragmented. It is:
C:\Documents and Settings\Administrator\Local Settings\Temp\Photoshop Temp2423144
The size is 25,182,820kb...
Do I need this file?

Since it appears to be a Photoshop file - does Photoshop work correctly and has it saved all of your files?

Try renaming the temp file with a Photoshop accessible extension and see if it does anything.

Good idea to rename it...

Everything seems to work okay so I deleted the file... no idea what I did to create the file but all's well that ends well.
