PRF*.tmp files

Dear All,

We use Windows XP SP2 and Novell Client 4.91SP2 on Netware 6 servers.
Users have a roaming profile and when the logout and logback in, loads of
PRF*.tmp files are created and read by the anti-virus software (Mcafee).
Unfortunately, this is slowing it the user down a lot. Even if you don't
make a change to the profile, it just creats these files.

Does anyone know any way of stopping it creating these files ? I
understand this is a feature with Windows 2000/XP. It is difficult to get
McAfee to stop scanning them, we have tried.

Any help, much appreaciated.

Many Thanks in advance.
