Can you explain what is the tmp exe antivirus sw reported?

You know what it is, and can you explain why it was executed every minute, even I did not use the reflector??

Reflector does make use of a temporary executable during it's automatic update process.

The fact that you are seeing this problem even when you have not used Reflector, and your antivirus is giving you messages frequently rather than just when you ask Reflector to auto-update, suggests that you have a virus that doesn't have anything to do with Reflector.

Yes, I've checked the tmp.exe file, it said Reflector.Install.

I thought it was a virus, because my company's computer has McAfee and it report the program every minute, untill I killed and deleted the tmp.exe.

Anyway, I think it is not good to force users to update. At least, it should not delete itself. As a software developer, it is only software I know which delete itself without any warnning.

Thank you Alex.

You'll be glad to know that the self-deletion behaviour was removed a while ago, and the remaining versions that do it will ask to update tomorrow, so if you update tomorrow, you'll never see it again.
