Help!! Temp files are appearing on my C drive all of a sudden. How do I check to see that windows is using the temp directory. I want to make sure the path is correct? Also is there any way to tell what program created them? Some of them are TEMP003700, TEMP005378 etc.

have never seen those names in relation to temp file although sound like they may be from the printer.
to set your own temp directory add the following to autoexec.bat:
set temp=c:\temp
set tmp=c:\temp
use whatever you want for the directory name and drive. create the directory at the proper location first.

if there are different lines in your autoexec.bat rem them out or delete. this should send the temp files from all apps to the same place.
