Windows 7: Cutting and pasting in Windows Explorer creates TMP files

Cutting and pasting in Windows Explorer creates TMP files

Something very strange has started happening in Windows Explorer. When I cut and paste image files into different folders, it does copy everything but for some reason, a few tmp files are being created as well. Every time I copy stuff, I have to delete about 5-6 of them.

Does anyone have any ideas as to why this is happening? It's started in the past few months and I've been hoping it would stop but it hasn't.
