I'm running out of disk space on my C drive. A week ago I had over two gigs of free space on it and I havent installed much since then. After checking around on the drive I found the file QTExtCode.dll in the C:\Documents and Settings\Owner\Local Settings\Temp\~vis0000 folder. This file is two gigbytes in size and was created about three days ago. Is there any way I can find out what program made this file, or does anyone know if it's safe to delete it? The only reference to it I've been able to find is for some C++ toolkit that I've never heard of and I dont think it's talking about a dll file. Any help on this would be appreciated.

I ran a search for the date it was created and it looks like it may be something from quicktime, although I dont know what it could possibly be. That thing you found from trolltech is the one I found but didn't think applied to it. I'll try the virus check next, and if that doesnt work I'll probably just uninstall quicktime and see what happens. Thanks for the advice.

Ok, now im REALLY confused. It didnt find a virus, so I uninstalled QuickTime. That didn't delete it, so I reinstalled QuickTime. (I like watching movie trailers :) After I reinstalled it, the entire ~vis0000 folder was gone and I have my two gigs back. So... Thanks for trying to help me, but I guess I got it fixed, even if I still have no idea why it happened.
