Hello In the directory C:\windows\temp their is a file named Perflib_Perfdata_2d0 Is this a virus or mal-ware or something. I did a search on the web, and it came back with antivirus forums. Does anybody know what it is. I am unable to delete it. When I do it say it is being used by another program. I have scanned my pc with spy-bot, malwarebytes, f-secure, a-squared, which by the way is the only one that found any threats, but not this file was not listed. Can I get help here or on a different discussion. Thank you Larry
Programs such as EasyCleaner can create Perflib_Perfdataxxx.dat files.
Here's more than you may want to know.
Perflib stands for Performance Library. Perfdata stands for Performance Data.
The %SystemRoot%\System32\Perflib_Perfdataxxx.dat files are created by the System Monitor. And/or %userprofile%\Local Settings\Temp\Perflib_Perfdataxxx.dat. or C:\Documents and Settings\Your Name Here\Local Settings\Temp\Perflib_Perfdataxxx.dat. When you shutdown normally, the file should be deleted.
If you have an abormal shutdown, these files can become orphaned, and accumulate on your computer.
Under some yet to be determined circumstances, these files can become orphaned during normal operation.
Hey Gary Thank You so Very Much for your expert help with matter. I Only have the file, and the only reason I questioned it is that I could not remove it from the Temp Folder. I will leave things alone, as this is hard for me. I like to delete things, and have gotten myself in trouble more than once. Again Thank You Larry VS
