Advanced Disk Cleaner has identified a file jet1037.tmp which it is unable to remove. The only reference to this file on Google is an article in German which appears to relate to someone having a problem with malware, though not necessarily with this file which merely occurs in a HiJackThis listing. Does anyone know anything about jet1037.tmp?

Try running Ccleaner, with just its default settings.

I have run Ccleaner but C;/windows/temp/jet1037.tmp was not removed. Contrary to my original message, the file was discovered by Registry First Aid not Advanced Disk Cleaner. Sorry about that. I would still like to know with which programme jet1037 is associated.

Afraid I don't know what the file refers to or belongs to, but as it is a Temp file have you tried deleting the Temp Folder at C:/WINDOWS/Temp ....

It isn't possible to delete either the file or the folder; the reason given is that the file is in use. Meanwhile I have found that the number after jet changes continually so the file appears to be deleted and produced in a different version. One correspondent on another techsite says that it is linked to the MS Jet Engine. It seems to be harmless so I thnik I shall ignore it. Thanks for the help.
