Windows 7: Files without extensions

10 Jan 2014   #1

Windows 7 Professional 32bit SP1
Files without extensions

When I save a word document or an excel spreadsheet some files with strange names (letters and figures, for example 12BB400) and without type/extension appear in the folder where the original file is located and every time I have to refresh to remove them. My Office is 2010 and I have Kaspersky antivirus. Also these file go away when I leave the folder or when I reboot the computer.

Please help.

My advice is still the same as it was in November when you asked about these temp files in this thread:
Files without extensions

However, maybe the video in this post will help you to use Process Monitor:
