Kaspersky Internet Security 2013:
These files are in my windows 7 temp directory and appear to be Kaspersky internet security files.
Can these files be deleted? they appear to keep growing, until windows gives me a warning that my drive is near capacity !

05/01/2013 07:13 PM 4,969,267,200 PR1A15.tmp
05/02/2013 03:37 PM 10,605,363,200 PR26F4.tmp
05/02/2013 12:11 PM 5,393,874,944 PR6EC1.tmp
05/01/2013 02:49 PM 7,923,630,080 PR7FFB.tmp
05/02/2013 03:31 AM 393,216 PR9B96.tmp
05/01/2013 07:13 PM 983,040 PRA222.tmp
05/01/2013 07:13 PM 524,288 PRA3A9.tmp
05/01/2013 07:13 PM 917,504 PRD895.tmp
05/01/2013 02:48 PM 150,994,944 PRE157.tmp

Do I really need over 27GB of temp files ?
Windows says that they are locked by Kaspersky. How do I delete them, and limit them from coming back?

Hello
are you doing a full scan currently?
Can you delete them after a system reboot (try only the large ones first)?

Same here, the tmp files caused C drive to be out of space! Utterly ridiculous and acceptable. No other antivirus that I used does this.

It especially happens much quicker when I uploaded files to the pogoplug cloud. Please give a solution to this, why is it creating these .tmp files for?

EDIT: after I pause protection, the tmp files created are gone. I hope there is a solution or I'll be forced to use another software.
