I have always wondered what this 0 byte file named NDISLOG.txt (located in Windows directory) is!!

I delete it everyday when i boot up and it doesnt come back...... (Until next bootup)

Is it anything like EVENTLOG.HTM?? (That file logs system errors which I delete that also if its created (after checking what the error was))

Does any know what function this file serves? What program creates this file?? (What program creates EVENTLOG.HTM for that matter??)

Hi, 4dude.  Your post was removed from FL after complaints were received when you bumped a thread from 2001, asking a question that had already been answered.
