Windows cannot open TMP files?

If Windows is unable to open file extension .TMP you may have registry related errors or may not have the appropriate program installed. We strongly recommend that you run a free registry scan.

Appropriate program:

Temporary (ie .TMP) files are usually generated by software for one of two reasons: either as a backup file or as a cache. In the case of cache files these can be generated automatically by programs that run out of memory space to allocate for tasks. Although innovations in systems architecture and software design have reduced the need for the generation of .TMP files some software will still need them. Temporary files should be deleted by the program that generated them, however sometimes, due to a software crash or poor software design the .TMP files arent removed and, potentially can take up a substantial amount of room on your hard-drive.. Incorrect associations are the cause of many file extension errors. Scan your system to prevent, identify and repair TMP file extension association errors.
