The problem is not deleting.The problem is stopping this file from rapid creation of un necessary files.Every each min a new file comes after deletion.Thats the problem.Its something an error or bug.

Hi firzon, Have you opened the file to see what programs are inside it, and see if you can delete them that

way.
