    Aloha,
    I ran sysedit and it showed 5 "set TVdumpflags=10" and was wondering if I needed all of it or just 1. I also looked at my C:\ root dir. and found some other multiple odd files like Autoexec.ns0 - 4 and also Config.ns0 - 4. I included 2 attachments to see what it looks like. Any suggestions will be appreciated. TIA

    This is a parameter for Zone Alarm to write out logs if a problem occurs. Its something that support sometimes requests for issues. Its a value you should NOT modify or remove.

    The rest of Autoexec.bat are backups that are created whenever the installation of a program edits the Autoexec.bat.

    Yes. They represent no threat.

    You should be able to safely delete all the AUTOEXEC and CONFIG files with weird extensions. You should keep the ones that have the file names AUTOEXEC.BAT and CONFIG.SYS. The same goes for the MSDOS and IO files. Keep the ones that has the file names MSDOS.SYS and IO.SYS.

    The C:\ root directory can get real cluttered up, if you let it.
