I would suggest you delete both files.

Whatever that temp folder is, it does not look like malware. But rather, again, something in the startup programs on your system.


I suggest you get and run the Microsoft Windows Defender Offline. This is an "offline" tool that you boot the pc with and scan your system for malware.

To get started, find a blank CD, DVD, or USB flash drive with at least 250 MB of free space and then download and run the tool—the tool will help you create the removable media.

The basic sequence of steps are

a) Download and SAVE the tool to a unique folder/location on your pc

b) Create the CD/DVD/USB-flash drive with tool

c) Set pc to boot from the offline media

d) Place media in & restart system

e) Run the tool. Have infinite patience & have it scan the entire system. Remove any malware that is found.

The log should be located in this folder. Copy and paste contents of that log.

c:\windows\windows defender offline\summit\mssWrapper.log

It gave nothing.

As we spent too many time, I've decided to reinstall win7.

No more hlktmp but some software to reinstall, the win7 restore software delete my data disk :( ( stupid software, it says it will erase the windows disk, but not the other disk where it only had 1 file to restore, delete 200GB of pictures to write a 10K file ! :angry: ). A chance I had some backup.

Anyway, thank you very much for all your help.
