    ...did no find any security violations.

    So you agree that there is something not right about these temp files? Did the previous scan you suggested not highlight anything?

    Will try that soon. Failing that I'm just going to do a full system restore and hopefully then get rid of whatever is chewing up my CPU! Starting to run slow... again. I bet this is some update from windows to make me upgrade.

    Open command prompt, right click and choose to run as administrator > type or copy/paste
    chkdsk c: /f /r

    reboot.
    Note that this will take lots of time so please be patient.
