Description

On Windows 7 64 bit a temporary folder (name like QGIS3-pIVhju) and a temporary file (name like QGIS3.FVdPpz) are created in the user temp directory (usually C:\Users\...\AppData\Local\Temp) upon every start of QGIS.
When QGIS is closed, the temporary folder and file are not deleted from the temp directory.

The same happens when crrsync.exe is executed after the install of a new QGIS version (crssync-vYfrXP - crssync.pVouJf)
