Temp dir keeps growing RRS feed

  • Question

  • It seems to be that my C:\WINDOWS\TEMP dir keeps growing after reboot and checks by WGA.
    Two files are being added:
    54c7029ab35beb1fed4b5b92fbe7ac0fPSK_PLUGINS_0 (around 8 MB), this one can not be deleted.
    PSSysChk

    How can I get rid of these files to empty the TEMP dir.
    I 've got a genuine XP version.

    Regards,
    Mark

  • Mark,

    Do you have Panda Internet Security software installed on your computer? You mentioned a file name PSSysChk this is why I am asking. Please use Microsoft's Live Search or your favorite search engine and look up PSSysChk. You will see that pssyschk.dll is a process belonging to the Panda interface program. The other file appears to be related to certain plugins. It appears WGA is not the cause for your C:\WINDOWS\TEMP directory to grow after your computer is rebooted. At this point this would fall outside the WGA Forum support scope. 

    Please still provide us with your MGA Diagnostic Tool results. We will analyze further to see if there are any problems with WGA.


    Thank you Mark,

  • Good Afternoon Mark,

    Please follow the steps outlined below as it could either resolve your issue or, if need be, provide us with additional information to determine the cause of this issue.

     

    1.      Ensure you log onto the computer experiencing the issue with “Administrator” rights.

    2.      Next we would like to confirm that you are running the most current version of the Genuine Advantage control on your computer. In order to do this please follow the below link and choose the “Validate Office” option.

     

    http://www.microsoft.com/genuine

    If the above steps did not resolve your issue lets continue with the steps below.

    If you could also please follow the steps outlined below, the diagnostics Web Site will attempt to resolve the validation errors you are experiencing with Office.

    http://www.microsoft.com/Genuine/diag/RunDiags.aspx?displayLang=en

    Next follow the on-screen prompts to resolve the issue if any of the checks at the above site fail. If, after attempting to resolve the issue as per the instructions on the above site fails, please refer to the link below and run the MGA Diagnostics tool:

     

    http://go.microsoft.com/fwlink/?linkid=52012

     

    You will be prompted to either “Run” or “Save” the tool. Choose to “Run” the tool and follow the on-screen prompts. You will receive an “Internet Explorer-Security Warning” dialog box for the “Windows Genuine Advantage Diagnostic Tool”; you must choose to “Run” this tool when prompted.

     

    Once you are presented with the Diagnostics tool choose “Continue” to run the diagnostic report. If the “RESOLVE” button is available after running the diagnostics, please click “RESOLVE” to allow the diagnostic tool to attempt a repair.

     

    1.      After running the MGA Diagnostic tool, click on the “Windows” tab and then click on “Copy”.

    2.      Please return to this post and “Paste” the results here for additional review.

     

    Step 2 is to look on the computer itself, in the documentation you received with the computer or with your retail purchase of Windows to see if you have a Certificate of Authenticity (COA).  If you have one, tell us about the COA.  Tell us:

    1.  What edition of Windows XP is it for, Home, Pro, or Media Center, or another version of Windows?

    2.  Does it read "OEM Software" or "OEM Product" in black lettering?

    3.  Or, does it have the computer manufacturer's name in black lettering?

    4.  DO NOT post the Product Key.

    Not sure what to look for?  See this page for reference:  http://www.microsoft.com/resources/howtotell/en/coa.mspx

     

    NOTE: The data collected with the Genuine Diagnostics Tool does NOT contain any information that can personally identify you and can be fully reviewed, by you, before being posted.



    Thank you,


    Stephen
