    what is the file deleteme.exe. ?

    do i need this ?

    when i ran find files or folders named *tmp, a list of files came up. i went to delete them all, since they are in my temp folder, and it posted a message saying that this was a program and deleting it mgiht cause some programs not to run properly (not sure exactly, writing this from work, not home where this is) so i wasnt sure whether to delete it or not so i hit cancel.

    why would a program be in my temp folder if temp things are stuff you dont need ?

    this isnt some kind of virus or anything is it ?

    go to your find or search for files & put deleteme in w/out the.exe ... see what it pulls up from where...

    as every install makes a temp file

    They're all temporary stuff put there by apps you install or run.
    And everything there can be deleted, be they folders, or any kind of file at all.
