I was scanning through my computer today and noticed the following file on my computer: plugin130_01.trace

This was located in my c:\documents and settings\myname folder

Any idea what this trace file is? It's rather small in size (under 1/2mb) Anything to be concerned about?

Running Windows 2000 pro, IE 6

Thanks.

Hi,

Right-click the file and Open With... choose Notepad and have a look at the contents, that may give you a clue as to what's going on....

Also go to Lavasoft's Website and download Ad-Aware and run it... it's find and delete any Spyware or nasty ad-tracer type software on your PC... it might find what's created the file....

Ionz.

Clarity begins at home....

That is part of the java plugin. From what I have seen it is kind of like an error log. It mostly appears to be debugging info.

You can leave or delete it. If you delete it, the next time the java plugin has a problem, it will just recreate it.
