Hi,

Try using Process Monitor to see if you can find out which program is writing to the file. That may give you a clue as to what might be in there. Set the filters to the folder you are interested in.

As it is a .tmp file you should be able to cut and paste it, (I assume it is in the Temp folder) to an external drive just to keep a copy until you find out what it is.Then see if it is re-created either when you start your laptop or when a particular program is started or if a program fails because it is not there.
