    I like to try beta programs. As you might expect, I have crashes once in a while. When that happens, something is creating a file called "memory.dmp". It is a large file, & I really don't want or need it (I just restore a clean image).

    Therefore, I would like to block memory.dmp from being created. I have already blocked drwatson successfully, but something still is creating memory.dmp whenever I have a crash.

    Does anyone know what creates memory.dmp? I want to block it if I can.
