windows server 2003 file share

i have a file on my file share server that is 32mb called pub3E8.tmp.
any ideas what this is? i ask because it is very unusual compared to all the other files, mostly excel, work, folders. so of course i get paranoid thinking it might be a "bad", malicious file. I scanned it with my virus protection  which is up-to-date and it seems clean, i'm just being paranoid.

It sounds like a temp file to me. Do you have Microsoft Publisher?

Delete the file and see if it comes back. It should certainly be safe to get rid of. Or rename it and see if anything happens. If not, then delete it.
