"Win###" files appearing in 'WINDOWS\Temp' fold

It's a weird one, lots and lots of these 'win' files (shown as tmp files but I am pretty sure they are actually .exe) are being created in the folder C:\WINDOWS\Temp

They're all called something like 'win12.tmp' or 'win8D.tmp' and although then can be deleted they just keep getting generated so I guess it's something to do with a file outside of this folder. I also get strange .exe files in my TIF folder (C:\Documents and Settings\Liam\Local Settings\Temporary Internet Files) which are constantly detected then 'removed' by NAV.

I have turned system restore off and scanned in safe mode using NAV, Spybot and Spysweeper but they can't find anything which will stop these supposedly tempory files being created. I have recently been infected with some high risk spyware including dialer.generic, trojan.dropper and winfixer - I have thought to have removed these (with the help with old threads on this site :whistling:) but I wouldn't be surprised if maybe they weren't cleaned out properly or something.

Any help gladly appreciated, I can't make much sense out of these logs and it might be very likely that these 'win###' files aren't the only thing wrong with my computer. Thanks a lot.
