Anyone have a clue what this file is associated with (C:\windows\system32\logfiles\wmi\trace.log)? Thanks...

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:

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.

Ep, glad to see you come back and tidy up...did want to ask a one day favor, I want to enhance my resume , was hoping you could make me administrator for a day, if so, take me right off since I won't be here to do anything, and don't know the slightest about the board, but it would be nice putting "served administrator osnn", if can do, THANKS
