Why does a Hidden File Keep Popping Up in Temp Folder?
by rogerthai - 3/3/05 7:16 PM
Many times after booting up my computer and going on line I notice a heavy download of data flow thru my Internet Connection to my computer. I am not running any programs that require downloads after Start Up, not even my Norton AntiVirus. I have all Norton Programs disabled on Start Up. The Hidden File in my Temp Folder is ( BIT1.tmp ). I have to cut my Internet Connection before deleting this File. I think this file comes from the Windows Core Files to download for the Windows XP Operating System. I can halt the download after I delete this hidden file from my Temp folder, but the same file usually keeps popping up in my Temp Folder most of the time on the next boot up. Does anyone know exactly what this File is? The Search Option on Windows XP can not find this file. That is why I am inclined to believe this is one of Windows XP Files downloading data for the operating system or worse yet downloading data for self serving reasons for Microsoft. Any Help will be much appreciated.
