Can't write to CD from Windows temp folder.

Q: Can't write to CD from Windows temp folder.

On Startup, Windows displays the "File waiting to be written to CD" message but the folder is empty.
If I attempt to copy a new file to the CD, it casches to the temporary folder but will not write of the CD. Either the "save and retry" message appears or sometimes a "file is wrong size". The file has been identified as CAKTIZWD, which no longer exists on my computer.
I can read the CD but can not write to it.
I am running Windows XP SP2 on a dell Inspiron 6000 laptop.
The CD is OK. I can burn CD's using Roxio.
I have run Mcafee virus scan and System Mechanic registry cleaner in an attempt to clear the erroneous tag, with no results.
Your assistance is appreciated

Preferred Solution: Can't write to CD from Windows temp folder.

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/download.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

Hello everyone
I can see on my company network that there is a windows machine in which the temp folder contains another folder:

temp/temp10634534/setup.exe
Is it normal for a temp folder to contain another temp folder?
 I was thinking this be an example of malware creating a randomly generated folder. VirusTotal does not flag the file as malicious but I am suspicious.

Any thoughts?

I have changed permission and also the Owner of the Windows folder to me but I still cannot write since I get access denied. And also I cannot change the read only flag because I receive access denied again.My account belongs to administrator group and UAC has been disabled. I searched thru GPEDIT.MSC for something relevant but haven't found anything.

A:How to write to C/Windows folder

Have you tried to put UAC back on to the first settings and see if that works?  There seems to be some issues with having UAC off and being able to perform some tasks as running Gadgets.  Maybe this is another one of those instances where having the UAC on is needed.I jsut checked and i am able to modify files in my C:\Windows folder and i have UAC on the lowest setting before actually having it turned off. ~Alex T.~Windows Desktop Experience MVP~

Issue number 2.

I am trying to Install a trial version of Kaspersky Antivirus 2012 but it wont continue unless I remove my McAfee Antivirus from the PC. I am happy with McAfee and am only installing Kaspersky to run a scan on my PC one time to compare the 2 antivirus programs. I have disabled McAfee from both the Startup and Services tabs in the System Configuration Utility accessed via MSCONFIG .

Kaspersky still wants to remove it...

How can I temporarily disable McAfee or trick Kaspersky into thinking McAfee isnt installed on my PC?

Thanks to all that answer.
 

A:Help with Windows XP and Temp Folder.

for issue one, I just use ATF and run it weekly. Whatever it doesn't delete doesn't need to be deleted.

For option two, you can't have dueling AV apps; they will cancel each other out. Personally, I recommend Microsoft Security Essentials as it's free and pretty lightweight, but if you wish to pay for it, nobody is going to stop you.

What are the spl.tmp files in c:\windows\temp - and can I delete them?

A:Windows Temp Folder

The .spl extension is for Flash programs and Print Spools. They're not essential to windows, but could still be needed.

If you want to get rid of temp files, I'd stick with running Disk Cleanup and also clearing them out of Internet Options.

G'Day src2206,

YES it is...try this:

Go into InternetExplorer Properties either via any open Internet Explorer page[like this one for instance] Tools > Internet Options > Settings, in here you can increase/decrease the amount of space by sliding the slider to the right or left.
Hope this answers your question, and works.

1) You should never have two different AV's installed at the same time.

2) McAfee is, in my opinion, worthless. I know you say you like it, but I'd suggest replacing it with something else.

Hi,

I have a friend who has Windows XP SP3 running with Vipre Anti Virus, the problem that arise is his temp folder seems to be filling up with these types of files..

C:\WINDOWS\TEMP\SBS_7ZIP_OPEN_20100414122513.234_ 7461

He has a 300GB hard drive and only about 20 or 30GB is used but the rest of the Hard drive will get filled with the above temp files until the whole drives runs out of space..its'll go down to 1 MB or less so the rest of the 200GB is full of temp files..and the low hard drive notifications popsup.. I always have ro have him run CCleaer to clean out his temp folder. This happens everyday...

I'm not sure what program is creating all these files, I had him uninstall his backup program (GFI home backup)..I see that a program is using the 7ZIP program or someting to create these files..I'm just lost? Can anyone help me out please, I really need to find out what is causing windows or a program to create this type of temp files until the hard drive runs out of space?

Thank you!

Within the last few weeks, my laptop C: drive lost most of its free space. I traced it to the C:/windows/temp file which took up 176 G. I could not find any subfolders or files that would take up that space, the sum of everything I could see inside the temp folder added to only about 3Gs.

When I first checked the temp folder properties, 34,000 plus files were indicted, but soon after only 375 files were indicated (375 files is about the number the files I can actual see in the temp folder). Regardless of the number of files indicated, 176 Gs were indicated in either case.

As I only had about 3Gs left in my C drive, I removed about 20 Gs of files to make room. The next day most of the empty space disappeared and the temp folder grew to 205 Gs overnight. There was a last modification date on that very night with a 2:08am time. I had the laptop on "sleep" at the time.

two questions:
1. what the heck is going on?
2. Can I just delete the entire C:/windows/temp file? I cannot find the subfolder or files that are causing the trouble.

thanks

Today when installing a program I noticed when it asked me where I wanted to install, it said I had 39gigs free on my C:\ drive. Well, I have a 74gig Raptor, which is 69gigs after format NFTS. There is no way I have 29gigs taken after a week. I have system restore turned off. I run ccleaner a couple times a day, so I thought it wasn't temps files.

I had to manually look at the properties of each individual folder to find them. CCleaner doesn't clean them.

Every 4 to 10 minutes a file is created in my Windows/temp directory. The files are binary and encrypted. All the files start with “dat” followed by a 4 number/letter sequence, and ending with a “tmp” extension. Example datD2F8.tmp All of the files are 226kb in size. Whatever is creating them is not deleting them.

Know any thing about these files?
 

A:Odd files in Windows/temp folder

These 2 temp folders:

C:\WINDOWS\Temp (XP and Vista)

C:\Documents And Settings\(Username)\Local Settings\Temp (XP)

C:\Users\(Username)\AppData\Local\Temp (Vista)

accumulate files on a regular basis. The non-Windows temp folder will accumulate a lot more than the Windows temp folder.

Unless you do a lot of installing and updating programs and creating new files, deleting the contents of these 2 temp folders a couple of times a month is sufficient.

There's no reason for letting those files annoy you.

When watching Online TV using WMP or VLC they create .tmp files in windows\Temp which become a couple of GB after some hours of watching. When I was with Win XP they deleted themselves after closing the player. Now not only they don't delete themselves but when i try to delete them manually I can't. The first time I delete them, no problems, but if I click refresh they are still there and if I try to delete them again I get the message that I don't have the needed rights(I'm logged in with administrator rights account). After a restart the files are gone. I don't want to restart every time after watching TV so I will appreciate your help.

-When using delete+empty recycle bin: the files don't show anymore in the folder, but also the free space stays the same. After restart the free space goes up.

I ran Malwarebytes and it discovered a rootkit and the file name is wuzisiib.dat . Malwarebytes said it had to reboot the computer in order to delete the file.

I rebooted and assumed the file had been deleted, however, it had not. I tried to manually delte the file but I get an error that says:

Cannot delete wuzisiib.dat: Access is denied.

Make sure the disk is not full or write-protected and that the file is not currently in use.

I tried changing the attributes of the file to no avail.

I downloaded a program called Unlocker that tried to delete the file on reboot but was unable.

Is there any way to delete this file short of reformatting the hard drive?!

Thanks,
Tomoko

Hello folks, got a problem that is driving me nuts.

First I am using an AlienWare M17 with Windows 7 Pro, fresh install no upgrade.

I am having trouble installing software that uses a temp folder. The first problem started while trying to install a printer, HP Deskjet F380. I downloaded the proper driver package and when I try to install I keep getting an error telling me that file blah blah blah cannot be found. I went to the temp folder and it was there, I cleared the temp folder and tried it again, no dice.

I tried installing a different printer, the software package allows you to choose your own temp folder so I made on on the desktop, same error as before with the other printer software.

This printer software works fine on the other computers I have here.

I tried installing Java, won't install.

I tried updating my GTA4, temp folder problems again, wont install and I cant play my game!

I tried it in safe mode, no good. I shut off all AlienWare software thinking that was the problem, no go.

Any ideas?

A:WIndows 7 Temp Folder install problems

Lets give this another round!

Ok, first problem I misreported, bad sitrep if you will.

When I try to install printer number one, I get the missing file error, see photo,



But when I go to the folder to look for it it is there, see photo,



I've tried safe mode and turning off all Alienware software, no change.

Problem 2,

Printer number two, when I try to install the software I get a wierd error. At first it did just like printer #1 but now it does this, see photo,



I am not running Vista!!



The printer software installed just fine on two other computers!

I get the same errors as printer #1 when I tried to install an update to GTA4 (I cannot play the game without the update!) and when I tried to install Java.

Any ideas what is happening here?

I have HP pavilion G6 laptop running windows 8.1. Found under c:\windows\temp a folder with a very long alphanumeric "name". On opening this appears to be an OS installation i.e. it has the following files included:

Program Files
Program Files (x86)
Program data
Sources
Users
Windows

Being in the temp folder I presume can be deleted. However I cannot delete this folder. I get the message that says I require permission from the trusted installer (??) to make changes to this folder.

How do I delete this folder ??

A:Unable to remove folder from Windows\Temp

Download a little program called "Take Control." Once you have it install that right click on the file you want to delete then click on "Take Control." Sometimes files in the Temp Folder just will not allow you to delet it for some reason. Also you could take a look in the tutorial forum here on the eights to see if there is a tutorial that may help answer your question. . .good luck.

I'm infected with the svchost.exe virus. It's in my Windows/Temp folder and AVG pops it up each time I boot up. I don't see any drastic change in the speed of my PC but it behaves strangely at times. Sometimes I'm browsing the internet and the "Limited or no connectivity" yellow triangle appears over the network icon in the task tray shortly before the computer totally freezes.

I have just received a running out of system disk memory notice on my Windows XP desktop computer. I was a bit surprised because I don't store much on the system disk, and as part of an exercise discussed on another thread here I had recently cleaned it up. I ran a scan with AVG free which came up with nothing and also Spybot S&D which cleaned out as many temp files as it could. After this I noticed one very large "hidden" folder remaining in the temp folder. It was called ~eu0000. In it was a single file called .eunf.
 
I have a dual boot so I could probably quite easily delete the folder and file, but before doing so I am curious as to whether it might have been caused by malware.
 

The composite image above shows the location of files on my very full system drive, as well as the results of the AVG scan.
 

 
This image shows the Windows temp folder (after the S&D cleanup) containing the offending large folder.
 
I should appreciate any thoughts anyone has on this.

I'm currently using Bitdefender, and every time it suggests me with an infected file, I choose the option to delete it, however it keeps on being infected or something like that. I have looked at other solutions regarding the same issue as I and I have tried doing what people told them to do, but nothing seems to work for me. I downloaded many anti virus programs and such, but nothing seems to fix the virus and getting it deleted, as the pop-up message keeps happening.

Hello Everyone

I installed windows on a new SSD drive, so i wanted to keep the "writing" on in on minimum.
I changed the paths to the temp folder in the "Environment Variables" window to a new one.
The problem is that the new temp folder works only for 1 restart, after the second one it uses the same default folder as before. After 1 restart the paths are already changed to the default value.
How can i make the changes permanent?
Thanks

A:Windows TEMP folder keeps changing back to default

How are you changing the Environment variable.

If you're doing it in a command prompt, that won't 'stick'

Right Click Computer
Select properties (bottom of the context menu)
Select Advanced system settings (left hand side of the window)
Press the [Environment Variables...] button (bottom right of window)

The top section shows the user variables
edit TEMP and change to the location you want
edit TMP so that it matches the location you supplied for TEMP

You have to do both
Press the [OK] button

Rename the temp folder under your user profile to x-temp

I think it's immediate, but a restart showed the issue before, so test a restart.

that should do it.

I've tried Avast and McAfee anti-viruses, and MalwareBites anti-malware, but they haven't had any success in getting rid of it for good. If I delete it, it comes back again minutes later.
