Not really a problem but an annoyance.
My windows (98) folder had hundreds of zero byte temp files produced by
Machine Debug Manager (MDM.EXE) I think, since I don't get any more after excluding this program in startup.

What is this program doing? Is there any penalty in disabling it?

Sorry. Wrong forum!

Congratulations Pete, on your elevation.

You'll put the post where it belongs now, won't you?

Thanks herbert

I suppose you're right, this one would be more appropriate in the Storage forum, so I moved it.

Not sure what the program is or whether there's any problem in disabling it, but if the files in question are 0 bytes, chances are it would be safe to delete them.

Try this:

Delete a few, but DON'T empty the Recycle bin. Wait a day or two, and if everything seems to be working OK, delete the rest, and wait a few days before dumping the Recycle bin. That's the best thing about having the Recycle bin, if you move something you need, it's not that big a problem to replace it, although sometimes it has to be done in DOS with a boot disk...

If you had everything...Where would you put it?
