    This is a question I encountered on a Dutch computerforum.
    Partly out of curiosity and partly to make sure.

    When starting Windows 98 SE a file called TC$10001.exe is created in the Windows\Temp folder
    Selecting Properties for this file learns that it is UPX executable packer made by http://upx.sf.net/

    Trial and error method learned that this file is created by automatic startup for The Cleaner.

    Does any of you know what it´s for?

    For those of you that want to read the original thread (in Dutch): http://www.helpmij.nl/forum/showthread.php?s=&threadid=76109

    Regards,

    Pieter

    You're quite welcome.

    Daniel's been very busy over there lately - and I believe it's starting to pay off for his users'. Pete
