Windows 7: Help with unknown software filling up Temp folder

I don't game and I think Eric is right, it is StopSign AV that was causing the problem. I've yet to see the folder return after uninstalling it.

What's everyone's view on using the Windows Defender?

Windows Defender in Windows 7 is it's antimalware program, not an antivirus program like it is in Windows 8. Frankly I have it turned off and have both Malwarebytes and Superantispyware as my antimalware programs. That said, I have Pro (active scanning) version of both won in contests. If you want an active antimalware program, and do not want to pay for one (Malwarebytes Pro is $19.95 or less these days), then by all means use Windows Defender. I'd still suggest installing the free versions of both Malwarebytes and Superantispyware.

For an antivirus program, I personally use the free Avast. Many here use the free Microsoft Security Essentials and like it.

Windows Defender is disabled by Norton when I installed it but I can run it on-demand as I want. It was originally a Giant Software which MS bought. GIANT AntiSpyware - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
For on demand I much prefer MalwareBytes and Super Anti Spyware, they both have a larger definition base.

Vendetta you have been having this problem for a very long time. I have been reading your post all over the net. Most of them point to a game or program of some kind doing this.

Can you install Ccleaner and give up a picture like this. It will probably take 2 of them.

Hi Layback Bear,

I've solved the problem with the nCore files, it's from the Stop Sign AV. My computer is back to normal now after uninstalling the software and re-installing it. If it gives me fits again, I will resort to using another virus software for protection.

Well good your fixed.
I don't know anything about Stop Sign but Microsoft Security Essentials works for me and millions of others.
If you ever good looking for another anti virus I suggest putting it on your list.

Thanks, will definitely check out the MS software! Glad someone finally figured out the nCore remedy. It was really annoying having to click on the shortcut to the folder and Shift Delete the NDB files every hour or so from it filling up the drive.
