I believe I have some kind of backups writing to my /tmp directory but I'm not for sure.  I know how to delete them and all but I want to know I can stop this from happening again. Below is a copy on my /tmp folder, can you advise me how I can stop this ever happening again, thanks!

What You mean? Those sess_XYZ files?
Those are php sessions files, it's ok they are there. Though, if You like You can change the session files location in Your php.ini config file.

clamav  are temporary file from clam antivirus, You are free to delete older than say 1 hour.
cpbandwidth: I don't know what they are, possible some temp data from another application as well.

Note: that You already have installed and configured tmpwatch package (it's system base) that wipes older than 10 days out /tmp files. You free to change it, edit /etc/cron.daily/tmpwatch - values are in hours.

A quick on Google shows cpbandwidth is oart of the cPanel application, and it's used to track bandwidth. There's no mention of the use of the files, but it;s safe to say if you don't use the tool, uninstall it and delete the files.
