Extremely large eset.temp folders on serveral network machines

Recommended Posts


We are currently experiencing an issue where several of our network machines are showing extremely high disk usage on C:\windows\temp\eset.temp

This folder isn't even visible if you go there in Explorer, but is is accessible via command line and utilities running as Administrator such as WinDirStat. 

The contents of the folder appears to be thousands of backups of the ESET executable as well as some other ancillary files. One I removed from a system today was over 100GB. 

Does anyone have any thoughts on what could be causing this, as it's a source of much frustration!
