Windows 7: Multiple unknown files created w/ Illustrator CS4

Multiple unknown files created w/ Illustrator CS4

Hi there,

I posted this over at the Adobe forums, but since this started happening after I installed Windows 7, I figured I may have a better chance at getting an answer here.

Whenever I'm working with a file in Illustrator, multiple unknown files are created. When I close Illustrator or reboot my computer, they remain. They have no file extension and their file size is almost always in the same range. In the attached images, each file ranges from 7MB to 7.99MB. I've previously had 100+ 14MB to 14.99MB files created. They can be deleted with no consequence.

I'm currently on the most recently released Windows 7 build that you can download from Microsoft's Website. This problem seems to only occur with Illustrator.

Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thank you!

Edit: My computer specs are provided on my profile.
