cannot remove tmp file jet****.tmp
Posted on 2004-08-31
I've been doing computer maintainence and have come across a temp file in
c:documents and settings\owner\local settings\temp\ that i cannot remove. Norton (current virus definitions up to date) did not find it. I receive an error that says "...is being used by a another person or program...". The worring thing about this file is it keeps changing its name. The first 3 letters are always JET but then the last 4 charactors change and the extension is always tmp. JET17Af9.tmp, JET861E.tmp etc. If a window is open on the file folder for an extended period the file disappears only to come back again with a different name. I have started the computer with just system files, ini files, but it will not let me delete it. I have tried in dos. A search of the internet doesn't bring up anything. Can anyone tell me what this is? I run a single PC with Windows XP, Zone Alarm and Adaware.
Thanks very much
