Outlook writing thousands of useless files

I have a strange problem with Outlook and Outlook express.

When I send/receive and get new emails, a small file is written to the C: drive. Right now they are: s268.17, s268.1b, and so on, all the files are 0kb to 9kb. They use other names, always starting with s. I recently deleted thousands of these files. Is this some sort of virus/trojan on my system?

Thank you for the help!

Note: to moderator. Can you change the points offered to 50? I did not understand how points worked and selected the importance to me of the question, but as a new member I now discover I don't have points.

Hello asrdias,

I tried to copy a file to post, but each time I get an error message, "Cannot copy Dc13: It is being used by another person or program." Yet Dc56 is not the name of the file, it is "S1i4.n" for that particular file! This despite Outlook being closed.
