Have client that is running SBS 2003.  Started getting few large .tmp files automatically appearing in c:\windows\temp folder. They seem to be relatively random in size and time of day creation.  Is there any specific way to determine what program is creating these large files.   I am able to delete them manually, but I need to know what's causing them to stop it.

You could enable auditing and use the auditing to find out some information about the writes.  Here's a link to some auditing information:

If that doesn't help, you can use process explorer to see what processes might be accessing the temp directory.
