Some temp files that have a size of 0 bytes are not deleted automatically after you install or upgrade the printer driver on a Windows Vista or Windows Server 2008-based computer

After you install or upgrade the printer driver on a Windows Vista-based or on a Windows Server 2008-based computer, some temp files that have a size of 0 bytes are created in the following folder:

%SystemRoot%\system32\spool\drivers\w32x86\3

Note: The temp files have a name, such as BUD.tmp. The placeholder represents a series of numbers.

Additionally, these temp files are not deleted automatically.

This problem may occur if the newly installed or upgraded printer driver includes the Unidrv.dll driver for Windows Vista or for Windows Server 2008.

There is a download that resolves this issue. See Hotfixes for details.
