I was looking at my C: drive this morning and saw a new 6MB log file for the first time. A sample of it is below. I did not install anything on 8/25. I did an internet search and cannot tell what it is. Any idea whether something is trying to access my system, or what this could be? Also, I am very low on disk space on my C: drive. If this log is necessary, can I move it to a larger partition?

Thanks!

This appears to be some sort of Peer To Peer (P2P) logfile - so if you're downloading/sharing music or other stuff this could be related to that.
My browser caused a flood of traffic, sio my IP address was banned. Hope to fix it soon. Will get back to posting as soon as Im able.

I have the Knack. **  If I haven't replied in 48 hours, please send me a message. My eye problems have recently increased and I'm having difficult reading posts. (23 Nov 2017)FYI - I am completely blind in the right eye and ~30% blind in the left eye.<p>If the eye problems get worse suddenly, I may not be able to respond.If that's the case and help is needed, please PM a staff member for assistance.
