Several weeks ago, I got a warning that there was no more space on C:,
my system partition. Properties showed 0 free space. I tracked down
the problem to a file named mnc82DB.tmp, which was about 50GB. It was
in the folder users\owner\appdata\local\temp. I have no idea where it
came from and Google has no entries if I search on that file name.
Trying to delete it fails, saying that it is open in another program.
Rebooting and then deleting it fixes it....

...Temporarily. Today it came back. Same issues. It's very annoying
since if I try to print something I will lose if I reboot, it won't do
it (0 free space). Another weirdness is that if I try to type
something into the Firefox Goggle engine, the letters are entered in
reverse order.

Anyone have any idea what in the world this is?  The OS is Vista
Business x64 SP3.

I have tried Avira, MalwareBytes and Panda scans.

For; mnc82DB.tmp  the extension indicats it is a TEMPorary file.  Why it is
50GBs in
unknown.  No file should be that large.

You need to use Process Explorer

In Process Explorer, Hit "Ctrl F" and enter the name of the TMP file and see
what process
is creating the TMP file.
