    Run a thorough AV/AM scan with a solution independant of your current AV/AM software if you have already done a scan with your own AV/AM software.

    Privacy Mantra (Free) will remove anything in the temp directories that are normally protected. (requires reboot)

    Could be the result of a program that didn't get installed properly, or a infection of some type.

    Don't worry about the file. It is automatically created by Windows to monitor performance data. You may see more than one file that is named similarly with the ending part being the only difference.

    Joe,

    You are correct. I wish, though, that I could *move* these system generated files into another directory, so they didn't interfere with cleaning that temp directory.

    Do you know how to do that?

    Thanks,
    Randy

    You'd have to disable performance logging and alerts. Not sure what else would be affected doing this. I don't think that is a good idea.
