File Flood

I have noticed that on my hard drive, there have appeared thousands of small files suffixed CHK. What are these, how did they get there, and more importantly, how do I get rid of them? They are slowing my system down. I have recently scanned & defragged(W98 SE)

Thanks tbh72 - reason duly noted - but now that I've got these on my drive how do I get rid of them - will another scan do it or will I have to remove them physically?

Yes, Jester, I understand that, but if I delete too many of the files at once, the system crashes, too few, and I'm there all day - is there a happy medium?

Thanks Jester, eventually blitzed them out in DOS,using *.* in each series. By God I won't make that mistake again!
And thanks DieSse.
