How can I not receive FAP.temp files - 1000's per day in temporary files.

  • No replies
  • 17 have this problem

In C: Users:User:App Data:Local:Temp I receive 1000's of these files a day. e.g. FAPC33A.temp.There os 0 bites in the files. Today I had 1053. I regularly delete these files & empty the Recycle Bin. Today it took 25 min to do this. I don't know it this is a Firefox issue, but could you tell me how I can not receive these files? Do I have a virus or spyware? Is it an issue with a recent Windows Update of Flash Player Update? Any help appreciated. Thank You
