    I have upgraded to Windows xp and when using microsoft word 2003, I have noticed many tmp files (~.tmp) appear around my root drive my documents folder and desktop. This does not cause technical problems but I find that it annoys me as I try to keep a clean hard drive. Is there a way to find what application these .tmp files come from, or, if possible, could I set my system to automaticaly delete them or stop them from being created.

    Thank you for your assistance.

    Sometimes replying to it yourself is necessary to keep it current if no one is responding.

    I'm also going to move it to Business and Applications, a better forum for "Word" issues
