    That sounds like the Zone Alarm software firewall logs directory. Do you have now (or previously) Zone Alarm installed?

    Delete them all. Just another reason to get rid of ZA. Its a POS. Get a hardware router and just use XP's firewall. All you need...and no overhead...or 800megs of logs. What a freakin joke.

    The .tmp files are simply previous versions of the ZA configuration rules, that get created at system reboot if ZA does not shutdown properly when rebooting. It isn't a problem, because ZA simply restarts using an available backup copy of its database. As for the .txt files, they are the firewall's log of every blocked access attempt and such from ZA. Yes, you can delete them all. But, if you are still using ZA, do not delete any other files, such as the .ldb and .rdb files, these are the control files for ZA.
