    Had a couple of those SET--.tmp files in sys32 folder which I deleted and seems to have caused no probs.

    Don't know what or where they came from.

    As for the others maybe upload them to Virus Total for a scan.If they come up clean you could delete them still but leave them binned for a bit in case any probs arise.
