    Hi FanJ,

    Googled and found nothing. Have you opened it with Notepad and tried to read the contents?

    No clocked.ini on my two XP systems here. Running Filemon, with clocked.ini in the "include" filter, might show what app is reading it. If you put a shortcut to Filemon in the Startup folder (with the same "include" filter), you might be able to see what app (if any) is reading it at Windows startup.

    Hi Nick, GF, Steve :D

    For the moment I have no idea what is causing this little file.

    As far as I remember my file integrity checker ADInf32 Pro never alerted me about it before (but the last few weeks were a little bit hectic....).

    If I can, I'll try to give a screenshot from IEView (hex-viewer from IEClean).

    EDIT :
    Sorry, the board-software does not allow me to give you here that screenie because "it was already uploaded" (in a mod-forum) :eek: :rolleyes: o_O o_O o_O

    Hi,

    I think I might have found what is causing this completely harmless file.
    But I think it would be wise that I first ask the company related to it, before I post in public.

    Thanks !!
    Cheers, Jan.
