I have a couple computers at work that only use adobe to read pdfs but the temp files located C:/ProgramData/Adobe/Temp are extremely large. My PC is sitting at 128gigs, inside the folder are lots of folders with numbers, inside those folders are config.bin and installer.bin. What do I need to do to stop this from constantly filling or generating. It happens in the middle of the night when people arent using it, or when I am doing other stuff, I noticed thats today 3 folders were created at 1:57pm and 3 folders at 1:45pm which, at those times I was desiging in Solidworks. Any help? Some computers have small hard drives so we need to delete this folder often.

Is Acrobat the only Adobe application on those computers?  My Adobe folder has subfolders with the names of other Adobe applications to keep them organized.

My best,

Interesting - My folder sturcture is very different - Windows 10 64 bit, and a Creative Cloud subscription on board.  Perhaps someone from Adobe can chime in on this.  Good luck!
