Thanks. We'll let you know when a new response is added.

That is one of the situations where a tool like “Process Explorer” (from Sysinternals) is really useful.  Check it out.

    How did u get this error ! did u run any script file/ try to rename/ delete any .tmp file. However, other reasons also for this error. U can also check virus related activities, though the chances r very few. If possible, please come back with more details.
