Re: How do I get rid of perfc000.dat ?



You are right, of course, Phil - I know 'nozzink' <g>

The purpose of my post was designed to prompt reaction, not from you, but
from others here. I apologise to you personally.

Perhaps you could, though, answer a 'real' query for me. I currently have
set up on this machine (in OE6) two specific newsgroups. One is
'news.microsoft.com' and the other is 'msnews.microsoft.com'. Each *appears*
to contain the same posts. Is there a simple expanation/reason for these two
identical facilities? TIA

A little knowledge is a dangerous thing. The proper reply would either to
answer as 'Malke' did, or to ask for a properly formatted post. Despite
the
incorrect format, the original post DID give the file name, which is all a
knowledgeable person such as 'Malke' needs. Her post also gave
information
that will help the original poster to research future problems.

You, on the other hand, ignored the specific information included in the
original post, and posted an irrelevant suggestion (and that by referring
to
a post in another newsgroup, a post that was no longer than your
redirecting
post in THIS newsgroup.)

CCleaner is irrelevant to the original poster's problem. "Remove '.dat'
files" is entirely irrelevant; just check the number of '.dat' files in
your
system and consider which you would wish to remove. The key question for
CCleaner would be WHICH '.dat' files and of course, most malware has
protection against removal and/or leaves other files and fingerprints on
the
compromised system.
