Hi,

I'm noticing files with names like "CAKHD56" (no extension) in every directory in my Win XP machine. File size is listed as empty. When I try to delete them, Windows won't let me. Sad

Are these files created by ClamWin Antivirus, or some other program?

no clamav creates somethine like clamav-123484398342 in temp but it deletes all temp files if it terminates correctly,
it may be a spyware, use processxp from http://www.sysinternals.com/ http://www.sysinternals.com/ and search for the process using the file handle
(there is an option find handle)

I went to the site, but couldn't find processxp after searching their site.

I'm not sure what file handle is either..
