    u can open a .log in note pad and see what it is a part of. there should be a program sig in there or u might be able to tell from what it is logging

    Just figured it out...was tracing for the new Bootvis program from MS. I had it do a trace and thought it was just for the boot but apparently it has kept going...:confused:

    Please, how did You stop the trace?

    I use Windows XP Professional.:)

    Also I have tried the MS Boot Visard, and ended up with a file C:\windows\system32\logfiles\wmi\trace.log growing with about 1 GB per hour.:eek:

    The process that holds the file open is System, with a PID of only 4!

    How do you stop the trace logging? :confused:

    Thread moved, but where?

    Where will I find the answers to my question, if any, when the thread is moved?

    After running bootvis.exe to analyze your startup time, you need to go back
    and run it a second time to view the results. If you don't, it starts
    logging at each bootup and won't stop until you run it again to look at the
    results. Reboot your computer to reset the log file, then run bootvis.exe.
    No more logging will occur, and you can delete the trace.log file then. Take
    bootvis out of your startup axis as well. Tuck it away for a rainy day
    when/if XP gets slow again.

    O.K. booby?

    OIC windows General. Wonder if the guy/gal sorted it out. Personally I didn't want to say 'press help' in bootvis.
