appdata temp folder fills up

November 20, 2010 at 08:54:16
Specs: Windows 7
I am using Windows 7. The users AppData Temp folder fills up with 65553 .tmp files. They all start with AdA. E.G. AdA1A.tmp. I can delete delete all 7gb of them. Then empty the recycle bin. Then open the Temp folder and they have all been recreated.

This seemed to happen after I installed MS Live Essentials. I cannot remove it now via the control panel

If you are using Symantec antivirus it is the one causing the problem. I have it too.
