Temp dlls

I recently got a new computer and have loaded XP SP2 and all software. I therefore have a clean and uncluttered system.
I find I seem to have permanently a large dll file in C:/Windows/temp. I am unable to delete it directly but can do so using a restart delete program (Cyberscrub) However dll then reappears, and changes its name every time. Size varies from a few hundred megs to several gigs.
I have checked my entire system using McAfee, Windows Defender, Spybot, Ad-aware and AVG antiroot. Nothing found! System runs perfectly as far as I am aware.
When I first loaded the system I took a copy of my hard disk using Paragon partition manager. This was a "hot copy" that is it copied my entire installation from within Windows. Logically it could only do this by using a lot(!) of temp files. Could there be a connection?
Any advice would be appreciated.

Solved this a while back but forgot to mark resolved.
Forgotten what the solution was!
