According to Microsoft there is still a registry key for the file but the file is missing. See ME197146 to solve this problem.
I was getting this event and EventID 1004 whenever the DNS service was started. I noticed that a new “.temp” file is created each time the service starts. On opening this file, I noticed that it contained data about one of the secondary zones on this server. I deleted that zone, removed its “.dns” files, and then recreated the zone. All was well after that. I think that this was caused by corruption in one of the zone files.
