I keep getting this empty folder on my desktop called "tmp". If I delete it, it comes back when i'm not looking. What is it?

Mine certainly is not, it is in Windows, and the contents are cleared each day with one or other of my Cleanup Utilities.

If the problem persist after following Tallin's advice.
Can you tell us whats in the tmp folder? Also I would venture to guess it is being created when you open up a "certain" program. Delete it and open some of your more commonly used programs and see if thats the case.
If it reappearing on the Desktop, your "My Documents" or M:\ drive is probably corrupt.

Try deleting the file from safe mode and see if it stays gone. If it doesn't, we'll see if we can determine what application is creating it to see if we can stop it from being created in the first place.

where did you get this information from? this is incorrect in any version of windows...lettered drives (or volumes) must be "mounted" from a target location such as a hard disk or network location....My Documents is a folder located on the local computer and doesn't require drive mapping...if this were the case then the letter M would not be an available drive letter...which i can assure you is not the case
In response to loopholes quote of mine, the temp folder is located in "My Documents" or also known to be the M:\ drive.
