TMP Files

  cornwall 12:38 21 Apr 2004

My system - running Win2K has a number of files named like
ffe0e297_{F40D569F-5E1B-4F18-96A6-890A6FD6CC13}.tmp all sized 0 bytes

Does anyone know what they are, and are they safe to delete

Where are they? Generally I would say that they can be deleted but it may indicate a problem that they are appearing.

Do you have any sort of system utility running?

if not and they are 0 bytes and are '.tmp' then they should be safe to delete

They are in the WINDOWS folder

no system utility running

  cornwall 12:59 21 Apr 2004

They are all with relatively historic dates

restart windows and if all OK wait a day or so to be sure then delete them
But probably safe just to delete them
