NK - plea for tech help

OK, I'm having all sorts of trouble with this computer, due to the hard drive 
filling up.  One of the things I'm wondering about is that there are a large 
number of files on my C: root directory I don't know the meaning of.  If 
they're just some sort of automatic backup or other drivel I can eliminate 
without causing problems, I'd like to know that.  The two largest groups are 
named after the patterns ffastun.ff_ (where _ is another letter) and 
File____.chk (where ____ is a 4-character, mostly all digits, sequence 
number).  I run Win95 if that makes a difference.  The .ff_ files are all 
dated today (now, which means they've been updated today and are probably 
important), the .chk files seem to come in groups with the same date months 
apart, which makes me wonder if they're artifacts of some system utility like 
the disk defragmenter.  I'd appreciate any information anyone has.
