    Dan:
    “C:\Users\UserName\AppData\Local\Temp\CR_15FB5.tmp”

    This is a classic example of why you need VS. Appdata\Local\Tmp is a favourite blackhat target because so many users do not know where or what it is. If you’re working in Admin… 🙁 In addition, many lazy non-security-oriented software authors make their installers execute from there. With VS you can lock that folder tighter than a snare-drum, although you may need to choose better softs that don’t want to use it as a staging post.

    And I bet that .tmp file never has the same name again.
