It's a performance analyzer trace file.

I wonder why I would have something like that on a Win 7 machine?

It's been quite a while but I believe I saw the same thing on an Enterprise Windows 7 machine. So I don't think it's unusual.

Hmmmm,.....If you only knew what has been happening with my machines.

 

Do you think it is only for "Enterprise" versions?  Windows 7 I should have said.

I only used WPA once on a Windows 7 machine. That was quite some time ago, with the assistance of someone. I also saw the log files a few times from other machines. What versions of Windows 7 WPA is confined to? I can't answer. I also can't remember which version of 7 I used WPA on. But I am quite confident that this is not nefarious.

Thanks  for your time "Animal". I think you may have helped me recently with another issue.  If you know someone that you could refer this to that might be able to tell me what the log output means/describes and what it is doing with those thumb db files I would appreciate it. Again,......Thanks

You're quite welcome, and I'll ask around. Since it's the holidays and a weekend as well. It might be a day or two before anyone has a chance to look. Have a nice holiday.
