Problem with temp folder

Hi, i'am using windows 7 ultimate x86 and from few days i have been facing a problem with the temp folder(located User\AppData\Local\Temp). Every time i connect to the internet, my antivirus always detects something from this particular temp folder like VRTC1C9.tmp, s608.tmp, VRTA4B7.tmp, VRT7FEB.tmp, VRT8604.tmp, sCEF2.tmp and ask me to select the suitable option. I guess due to this my firefox and chrome stoped working. But IE's running smoothly.
So, experts plz help me out.......

Hello and welcome akakzz Mate just a quick tip it's always worth a quick Google of stuff like that very often it pops something up for you.

Now i did quick one and that s608.tmp shows up it might be some malware of some sort mentioning Nigeria as there are cleaning solutions sites.

Have you got Malwarebytes or SuperAntiSpyware apps on if not download them they are free and run them they don't take long. Let us know how you go.

Yes doing a quick Google does help.

I have read on this and the other website you have formatted the c drive and no other drives are attached.
Do you have more than one partition on the same drive that c is on.
My thinking is:
1. You have a infected Windows 7 cd/dvd which is installing the infection with a format and install. Where/wheir did you get your copy of Windows 7 and by what method?
2. You have something infected in the computer like another partition, flash drive, card reader ect. which infects you system as soon as Windows is installed.
3. IoBit any thing is not good and that includes Advanced System Care.
4. You are installing the same programs from a backup or on line source that you had before which are probably also infected.
My reasoning: A clean computer does not get infected by formating and installing a clean copy of Windows 7. There/their is a snake in the wood pile some where/wheir.

Hiyya Layback I think we need to know what the set up is too as in specs cos as you say if there is a visitor in the wood pile then we need to know what that wood pile contains eh?

My thinking is perhaps there is something stashed away in the RAM or whatever.
