Windows 7 temp folder full of 27 GB worth of pr*.tmp files

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 !

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.
