    sqlite_'represents a variable alpha-numeric code;

    sqlite_;represents a variable alpha-numeric code;-journal

    (removed the letters and numbers)

    hi again, would sqlite come with an ANTI-virus program?>

    ''The SQLite distribution comes with a standalone command-line access program (sqlite) that can be used to administer an SQLite database and which serves as an example of how to use the SQLite library.''

    Totally confused

    You probably accessed a web site that uses the SQLite database engine. I am almost 100% certain that there is nothing wrong. Their phone number is listed here:

    http://www.sqlite.org/support.html

    I am certain that if you give them a call (or write), you will find an answer.

    Probably a web based one.

    Thank you>Close_Hauled,

    Sorry to sound stressed!!, do you think it would be alright to delete these files from my temp folder, or would it cause system problem?

    Cheers again,

    T:)

    Hi Tom

    Should be no problem deleting these files, I empty the temp folder evrey time I shut down.
    If you are not confident of doing this then move the files to a folder of your choice until you are happy they can be deleted.
