I've been researching on Google and I'm getting the feeling you CAN. This is on my C Drive and it's 52.56MB - I saw it before but then forgot to look into it, now it's really bugging me. Under Properties, it just says FILE, so I dont know WHAT it is.

Think I can safely delete?

Thanks!

That's a little bit too big of a file to just be deleting without being sure...and since we don't know anything about your system, I definately don't want to recommend deleting anything until I get a little more info. For instance, if you are running ME, that file might be a restore file or something.

I have Win98 and this file was created Aug 2004, and Ive had this monster since 1998. All the googling Ive done has shown ALOT of people have this and it's mp3s or something music related.

I saw those same sites on Google also, but they were nowhere near the size of what you are talking about.

However, the advice given is the same I was going to give to you anyway... rename the file, reboot, and see if something doesn't work. If everything still works ok (as in test out your various applications to make sure), then it should be safe to delete.

deleted this file, everything works great, so it was useless.

THANK YOU! :flowers: :thumbsup:
