DLL as a .tmp file RRS feed

  • Question

  • While troubleshooting a few instances of a failed Java update (didn't cleanup after itself) of some kind on a few workstations, I noticed a .tmp file being created in the temp folder that was being regsitered into the registry, replacing the CoPNGFilter Class\pngflt.dll registration, casing IE to not display png images. I dumped the pritable strings inside the tmp file and it looked like a DLL itself, specifically acctres.dll. I was wondering if its normal for processes (like the Java one in this case) to create .tmp files from existing DLLs to accomplish whatever it is they are trying to complete? Perhaps there are some functions in the DLL that the process relies on, something needed to be done with CoPNGFilter Class\pngflt.dll system file that required it temporarily be registered with the tmp file? Under what circumstances does a process create a .tmp file from a DLL?
