    hi i just noticed some weird files on my G: partition root. (my temp folders are located in g:\temp and there should be absolutely nothing on my g partition outside the temp folder). they are all zero byte and have the names showed in this screenshot: http://img290.echo.cx/img290/9697/image25ll.jpg

    ive scanned the files despite them being zero byte, with kav and drweb. nothing fonud of course. googled for tempwebseed and found nothing. i found this really strange. my guess is that its something placed there by an activex control. but since i use firefox its not worked and ive ended up with zero byte files.

    any clue what this is ?
