    I can help ya ditch most of that just by closin' IE down and deletin' the first 4/5ths of that file ( ya can open it in wordpad I think) thus clearin' some room till someone comes up with a proper fix (sorry but I havn't come across this one before). ;)

    It's a performance trace log file. See this page for more information. Simply turn off the performance tracing using the details on that page :)

    Thanx m8. :thumb:

    BTW can ya tell me why his did that and none of the basic networked Home and Pro installs that I've done (yes and I admit that I'm far from comfortable diggin' around inside XP still but any DOS based Windows I'll dive into like a pig in mud and carve it up to suit a purpose) have done this? :?:

    Except ME'ss but I think ppl know my adversion to this os and no one will change that oppinion I have of it. : peace2:

    No idea how he turned it on. Maybe a program he installed turned it on for performance monitoring and it crashed and didn't shut it down properly. Who knows? I personally removed all those performance monitoring services from my Services as well as all the useless error reporting logs a long time ago :)

    I like to keep some of them as a safe guard to a possible prob when I get the urge to push so the ones I do have I just edit every now and again but I leave enough to give me a reference to work with should something start to backfire on me. ;)
