- hard drive fills up

I noticed that my hard disk was getting full without any downloads of any
In the windows\temp folder I found 1897 files that took up about 25 gig in
total. these files were named Acr####.tmp with #### being a hexadecimal
I also noticed some files called perfib_perfdata### in that directory. Does
anyone know if these have been placed by a virus or just some application
I use AVG as my virus scanner.
Any assistance appreciated.
Re: hard drive fills up
Have you been using Acrobat as a reader?? That puts large files with
that "Acr1234.tmp" sort of thing in the Temp folder.
As for Perflib, etc. I have 2 files in there and they have been there
since Day 1. No virus involved.
Clean out your Temp and TIF folders every day as a matter of good
housekeeping......along with Disk Cleanup and Defrag at least once a
week. That is just a few housekeeping items......there are more. Sun
Java, Mozilla Firefox, etc.
