    I keep seeing temp files pop up in my flash drive everytime I make a change in a WORD or EXCEL file. I tried to correct this behavior by running System Restore. No dice.

  4. temp files

    Temp file in File Explorer

    Following a recent update, the Excel temp file shows up in File Explorer, as it should, but then it disappears, then pops up again, then disappears and pops up again, erratic but about every one or two seconds. As it appears at the top of the list, each
    time it appears it moves all files down a row, and it does it so fast it is difficult to click on any file below it, as they are all constantly moving up or down. The Word temp file stays there like it should. Suggestions?
