Solved Windows TEMP Folder Files Being Added Every Second

  • 0

I have Windows 7 on my desktop computer. The TEMP folder under the WINDOWS folder is being added with temporary files every second. All the files have a .tmp extension, but appears to have 0 storage space taken up in the files. I had deleted all the contents in the folder, containing over 60K files, rebooted the computer, and files started to be added upon system bootup being completed. I have Symantec anti-virus loaded, and constantly monitoring my computer, with no viruses being identified.
What is causing this issue to occur? How can I correct this issue, if it should not be occurring?
