    In the C:\WINDOWS\Temp directory (or folder) there are two files that cannot
    be deleted and are 1KB in size:

    WGAErrLog.txt
    WGANotify.settings

    The WGAErrLog.txt file has a very long number in it and I wonder what the
    number represents or indicates. Anyone know?

    Also, why can't these two files be removed? Does this indicate a WGA
    problem?

    I searched the Microsoft Knowledge Base and found nothing on this file.

    Thanks.
