I have a Dell Dimension 5000 with XP and 1GB memory. I am having trouble with a large sqlite file building up in the Windows Temp folder (3 or 4 GB per hour). I can't delete the file until I have rebooted the PC as the file is 'in use'. All other sqlite files clear down to their normal size of 0 or 1 KB. I thought that the problem was related to McAfee, but it still occurred after I uninstalled their software.

Disable system restore, reboot the PC then reenable it if you really want to. If the file persists, use Unlocker 1.8.9.

Thanks. I tried disabling System Restore with no success. When I tried to go to the ccollomb web site for unlocker, I get a Microsoft warning not to enter the site because it was suspect.

go here for info on SQLite's Use Of Temporary Disk Files...This article describes the various temporary files that SQLite creates and uses. It describes when the files are created, when they are deleted, what they are used for, why they are important, and how to avoid them on systems where creating temporary files is expensive.

Thanks for your help guys. I think that I am probably faced with a having to do a complete system reinstallation. I assume that unlocker will simply enable me to delete the sqlite file without rebooting, but presumably a new sqlite file will immediately be created as something is clearly going wrong with the journalling of a particular set of database transactions. Any ideas on how I can find out which process is causing the problem?
