New?.tmp.exe

Recommended Posts

I keep getting the following alert box regarding C:\Users\Username\AppData\Local\Temp\NEW????.tmp.exe where ???? represents alphanumeric characters, different each time. The warning is "Windows cannot access the specified device, path, or file. You may not have the appropriate permissions to access the item.

 

This happened after I deleted some files to recover disk space, but I cannot find what this file is. It might be malware? Thanks for your help.

Thanks, Juliet. I did what you suggested. We will see if it stops.

I don't know what was sending the alert, antivirus?

But it was located in a temp folder/file that you should had been able to drop into safe mode and delete.

 

let me know if the above helps.
