Unknown Files

By majhnthat ·
Recently recovered from a Hard Drvie crash. While checking the Win95 dir found a large -over 100 - number of files with 0 bytes and file name like ===> fffe9dc7_{1786E700-9703-11D4-B6D0-40EE09C10000}.tmp
What are these files? Where are they from? Can I delete them?
Running Win 95 with MSIE 5.5 Outlook Express 5 on a Cyrix 166. Thanks

These files was in a temp directory before the hard drive crashed. They are being reported by the system register because they were on the hard drive before the hard drive crashed. Because of the crash the temp files was not restored, and the systemregister is reporting the files as 0 bytes, because they where not delete from the system register.

These files are no longer needed, and can be delete. Then they will no longer be in the system register after a reboot.

You may want to add the following lines in your autoexec.bat file.

del c:\windows\*.tmp
del c:\windows\temp\*.tmp

These get rid of unnecessary temporary files which ie and even windows can create.

Disable script debugging in Internet Explorer advanced properties to keep these files from re-appearing on your hard drive.
