could you elaborate a bit? I did a search for .tmp in a finder window, told it to search "This Mac", and switched from "Contents" to "File Name". I then hit the + button and added a criteria of:
"Kind" is "Other"
It then has a blank field. How to I add invisibles and system files?

You'll get a new window with all the other criteria you can add to the drop-down menu, enable the ones you want, in addition to File invisible and System files, and click OK. Click on Kind button again, and add System files and select include, repeat and add File invisible and select visible and invisible, type in .tmp in your search window, and hit the return key. .tmp files should show up.27" iMac i7 12 GB RAM, Mac OS X (10.6.6), G4 450 MP GB 1.5 GB RAM w/(10.5.8/10.4.11/9.2.2)
