Hi all can anybody help with cleaning this out of my system it's generating files and folders under the name of Perflib_perfdata_75c with the last numbers changing each time. It's located in the windows temp folder and also in the temp folder in local settings, I've tried most of the remover scan utilities with no luck also in safe mode etc etc. Any help would be appreciated.

Perflib_Perfdataxxx.dat (Performance library, Performance Data) files are sometimes created by the System Monitor. When you shutdown normally, the file should be deleted but as Microsoft advises, if you have an abormal shutdown, they can become orphaned and accumulate on your computer.
