Hi, and thanks for creating Ad-Aware.

1) There is a type of file in my windows temp folder that's undeletable, and it keeps generating; the size of the file is always the same (144kb) and it changes it's name (~DFB25C.tmp, etc.).

2) The WhoLockMe software says those files are being locked by the Winlogon process.

3) I have tried almost all antiviruses (Trendmicro's housecall, Panda Activescan, Norton Internet Security, AVG, BitDefender), and some of the greatest anti-spyware software (Ad-Aware and Spybot S&D), but none of detects what software is creating those undeletable temp files.
I'm most worried because I know that when a file is locked and it keeps generating, it's sure it is a virus or spyware; I formatted Windows two times, and the virus or spyware keeps infecting my PC.

4) I have Ad-Aware and HijackThis logs:

If you know something about what is infecting my system please tell me, I would be very grateful, thanks.

***Update: WindowBlinds was creating those files. I don't know if that's normal or not.

Hi Need help.,

***Update: WindowBlinds was creating those files. I don't know if that's normal or not.

Have you resolved the problem, sounds like you've figured out what was courseing the file... yes it would be perfectly normal for applications such as WindowBlinds to create and use temporary files whilst it is running, if you want to be on the safe side, reboot your computer into safe mode and try deleteing them from that...

Thanks Chris Fry

The process attached to Winlogon is Stardock for changing the taskbar... was this an intentional install? if it was, then you have nothing to worry about here....
