    well, at first glance the files look like save-files. Silly question, have you installed any new games recently (or uninstalled, but chose to keep the savegames)? Could be I'm completely wrong though!

    AusLogics Registry Degrag is the last program I downloaded, but I cannot recall the last program that I uninstalled. I deleted this folder about 4 days ago, but I noticed about a couple days that it reappeared.

    Did you do a Registry Defrag a couple of days ago?
    The RD may stand for that. And each TMP file is a backup of a registry hive.

    If not, when the files reappear,note the day/time of creation and determine what was running at the time.

    Well, if you were in fact playing a game, that used this folder for savegames, and deleted it - the next time you played the game and saved, it would of course reappear. Moreover, it makes sense then, that the names would start at a higher number (25) and not 1, since this would be your 25. savegame. Of course it doesn't have to be a game, but any program you are using. If you want to find out which program, simply delete the folder again (or better yet, simply move it - so you can replace it if need be) and try using any programs you've used in the past couple of days - then check when the folder reappeares. Good luck!

    Do you have a Canon camera? If so, I think this may be a temporary folder made when you plug the camera in to USB.

    The HijackThis log would it be possible for it to be posted in the open forum instead of in an attachment and zipped? Please unzip it and repost so everyone can see including the HJT experts?

    Somehow I do not think that this is going to get answered soon. I hate just getting up it takes too long for reading dates and things.<g>

    I have experienced this once and for me it turned out to be left-over folders from Microsoft Updates. These are temporary folders and can be safely deleted, the update "forgot" to delete them.

    The post is rather old, be it is not clear to me if the issue has been solved or not...
