Topic: Outlook PDF Attachment Opens With Extra Number In File Name

I receive emails each day with PDF attachments. The file name for the attachment is always the same name.
When I open the PDF attachment, it opens in Reader 6.0.2, and it adds a number to the file name.
Example, Outlook 2002 will see file PDF attachment file name "file_name_about_eighteen_chars.pdf".
When Reader 6.0.2 opens the file attachment, it opens it as "file_name_about_eighteen_chars1.pdf".
This last digit, increments too, but not always.
This does not happen with all PDF attachments, just a few, and its random.
My thought is there must be a temporary file created by Reader, and for what ever reason, it is not being deleted.
Where does Reader Create its temporary files?
How can I get Reader to open the exact file name of the attachment without adding numbers to the file name?
