Undeletable temp files

Was running Spybot resident, Norton AV, and Mcafee firewall, all updates. Did scans with Adaware, HouseCall and found only cookies. But Rootkit finder found a file in temp, which I couldn't delete. No other obvious bad behavior, but concerned there might be something.

I've seen this in a couple of other threads, but didn't want to start using someone elses prescription if I didn't need to...

I ran cleanup, then ewido, then Trojan hunter,Panda Activescan, then Hijack This, non-cookie output posted below.

Panda noted Searchcentrix, but I couldn't find the trace files.

The files that keep re-appearing in my C:\Documents and Settings\dhuff\Local Settings\Temp are:

mmmxl.log text is:

They are deletable right after bootup, but then reform and can't be deleted.
