Every time I turn my PC on and Log in I check my Temp Folder and it has all this crap in it. Besides just deleting it all like I do every day, would there happen to be an easier way? And why is this happening anyway?

It also says I have 1 hidden File. I have not messed with the hidden file. Should I delete it or is it of some importance?

Below are links to the screenshots it took.

Issue number 2.

I am trying to Install a trial version of Kaspersky Antivirus 2012 but it wont continue unless I remove my McAfee Antivirus from the PC. I am happy with McAfee and am only installing Kaspersky to run a scan on my PC one time to compare the 2 antivirus programs. I have disabled McAfee from both the Startup and Services tabs in the System Configuration Utility accessed via MSCONFIG .

Kaspersky still wants to remove it...

How can I temporarily disable McAfee or trick Kaspersky into thinking McAfee isnt installed on my PC?

Thanks to all that answer.

for issue one, I just use ATF and run it weekly. Whatever it doesn't delete doesn't need to be deleted.

For option two, you can't have dueling AV apps; they will cancel each other out. Personally, I recommend Microsoft Security Essentials as it's free and pretty lightweight, but if you wish to pay for it, nobody is going to stop you. :)

I know you cant have 2 antivirus apps. That's why I want to temporarily disable McAfee and install Kaspersky to do 1 full scan then switch back to McAfee. Thanks for your response.
