.T$M File

File extension: T$M
File type: Temporary File


Notes about the T$M file extension:



Incorrect file associations could be the result of underlying issues within your PC system. As such it is highly recommended to scan your PC for invalid registry entries, unused processes and other unfavourable system settings to identify slowdown issues.

The T$M file type is primarily associated with 'AVG' by AVG Technologies. AVG is anti-virus software that uses the following technologies to detect computer viruses: Scanning - searching for character strings that are characteristic of a given virus; Heuristic analysis - dynamic emulation of the scanned objectís instructions in a virtual computer environment; and Generic detection - detection of instructions characteristic of the given virus/group of viruses. When AVG encounters a locked or corrupted file it must scan it copies this file to a temporary directory with this file extension. Normally, you would not see these files as they are deleted automatically but some program versions left them after a scheduled scan. This problem was supposed to be fixed in program versions released after March 2007. If you are still seeing the behavior of mysteriously appearing .T$M files in a temporary directory update your version of AVG. See the Forum thread for more details. A special thanks to user MarkA for doing the necessary research to pin this down.
