In the following location: C:/Documents and Settings/John/Local Settings/temp
If I create any folders, for example I created 5 of them. Within about 5 minutes or less, the folders auto delete. As far as I know there isn't any security software/antivirus running. How can I figure out what is deleting the folders?
There is a program I use that needs a folder in there and just this week, the folder started deleting itself.
- Within the Temp directory, I right click
- Choose New Folder
- Create the folder
- Wait a few minutes
- The folder deletes itself.
To verify that it wasn't just the folder my program needed that was being deleted, I created several other folders with random names. They all delete at the same time.
I verified the folders have full permissions for local Administrator, Domain Admins, and the domain user (john) as well. John is also part of the local Admins group.
Everything else on the computer appears to be working fine, except for the folder automatically deleting every few minutes from the temp folder.
