Thank you, Andre.
It is a new HP notebook running Vists Home Premium. The file is about 6.2
gigs. The drive came partitioned, with the D partition being locked off and
containing recovery software and data. I made a separate recovery disk using
an OEM-installed program. It's the fact that this is a temp file on the C
portion of the drive that makes me wonder if it could not be deleted.
