    Hi

    While cleaning out my Temp Folder, I came across iepeers.dll. :confused:

    What is it doing in my Temp folder? I did a google search on it and found the following info: It is a needed part of Internet Explorer~~description: Internet Explorer Peer Objects.

    Location in my Temp folder: C:/temp/windows/system
    The original file name: iepeers.dll

    I am a fairly new user and have no clue what to do with this file. Normally, I delete files in Temp folder after a few days. This file just now showed up in (Temp Folder) in the last few days and shows it was modified on 2/18/05. Wonder why it never showed up in my Temp Folder before????:confused:

    I have no idea what to do with this file, but it doesn't seem like one that should be deleted.:eek: Help appreciated!! Thanks!

    Hi if it's in your temp folder you should be able to safely delete it. That file should be located in the System folder for Windows 98, just to be on the safe side before trashing it from temp check to make sure it's in the other one.

    Hi dr20

    My Os is Win Me. I checked in my Windows System folder, and iepeers.dll is there. Actually, there are two of them~~both are exactly the same. SOooo, I will delete the one in my Temp folder and keep my fingers crossed. Actually, it will be in my Recycle Bin if I should have a problem and need to recover it.

    Many thanks!!

    No problem, I saw you were in ME afterwards. I get a lot of strange files in my temp folder too but find they're mostly related to Winamp for some reason because they won't delete until Winamp is closed. It's possible that's how iepeers.dll got in yours, another program may have been temporarily accessing it.

    You're welcome.:)

    It should be a regular part of your computer maintenance so you can prevent the buildup of temp files.(y)
