Y32 file creation on Delete

Recently my computer started to generate a file named Y32- ~ .tmp in my windows/temp folder every time I delete a file.  The content of the Y32 file is just the name of the file I just deleted.
These files accumulate and are not removed when I turn the computer off.  If I try to delete them from the temp folder they just regenerate.

Also prior to this happening My computer started to hang up at the Win98 window on startup.  In going through msconfig I discov ered that I could eliminate the hangup if I unchecked a box in config.sys called DOS=high,umb,auto.  I have no idea file this refers to, nor whether these two items are related.  If anyone out there has any suggestions I would appreciate hearing from you

DOS=high,umb,auto
this load dos in the upper memory block
you con't need that, so leave it unchecked
as far as the y32. do you have any install/unistall loggers, or third party disk managers or anything like that?
