I can't delete and it appears in different variations under Temporary internet files\content.....

I am seeing this on several different clients w2k machines and all it does it ding when i try to delete.

Spybot won't get and neither will any other disk wipe tools.

Ok, I'll try it.

But what the hell is a *.2 or .6 or .8 file?  

It actually says "2 file" in the file types column
HI..

First -> Your hide the firewall, If yes, check the security options
Second -> Check the Add/Remove Program from Control Panel... Any package that u have not installed
Third -> Boot the pc in safe mode without Network option and delete all the *.tmp file..

This may be because of the sites ur are visiting...

Don't go to porn or crack sites....

Try selecting the file Shift-Del

Commented:
I mean

1. Select the file
2. Shift-Del

Do you get an error when you get ding ? Does it say access denied or file is in use? Sometimes some apps(namely IE) may still be locking that file. In this case, you will have to find out why. Does it happen only when you visit certain sites or it happens all the time.

that's when I get the ding when I try to delete with shift-del.  No there is not an error message.  Access is denied only when I try to access properties of the file.

All tmp files and the entire temp directory, temp internet files (except above mentioned files) have been deleted.

I don't need the lecture about safe surfing...

Does anyone know what this file is?????
