I have two PC's both running Win XP Home SP2. On one of them, every time I start or do a reboot I get a .DAT file in the C:\Windows\Temp folder called: Perflib_Perfdata_xxx. I can delete the files from the previous day but not from the current day. I do not get this file when I use the other computer on startup. Just curious if there is a fix I could use to not get this file to load up everytime I startup or should I just leave it alone? Thanks.

perflib_perfdata is a performance monitor data file created by the PC motherboard at every re-boot. It's evidently incorporated into the motherboard of one of your computers, but not the other one. Quite harmless.
