Have found two application-files called "EDow" sitting in a seperate "temp" file under C. There are no other associated files. I can't seem to open them and according to properties, they have been there for the past 6 months.

CWShredder doesn't pick up on them neither does Adaware.

Does anyone know what they are and can they be deleted being in a "temp" file?

Delete them from Temp file by Right clicking and holding shift key when left clicking on Delete. This will prevent them from going into the Recycle Bin First.
