.tmp files are not automatically removing themselves in Excel 2007

Recently - over the past 2 weeks I have noticed that when I open an excel file with the older extension    .xls in Excel 2007, it creates a tmp file as normal, but after closing the file the tmp file remains there even after a reboot.  Whats interesting about it is that an  Excel 2007 with the .xlsx extension does not have this issue.  The only changes in my system recently has been from Trend PC-Cillin 2007 to Trend PC-Cillin 2009.  The problem with this is that sometimes when I try to open one of the older files I am getting Sharing Violations and the error indicates that the error is due to the tmp file still being open.  Any help on this would be appreciated.

In Excel go to Tools/Option/Save and remove the tick in the box opposite AutoRecovery. That will stop the creation of those files but it will also remove the AutoRecovery feature.

Alternatively - in the same location increase the time between saving the AutoRecovery information to much longer - so producing fewer files that need to be deleted.
