Temp file trouble PerFlib PerData

Guest

I am having a hard time with a file named PerFlib PerData. I can not remove
it from my temp files. I does not show up in safe mode. From what I have read
online it is a counter file. Ever time I try to remove it it tells me the
file is being used by another person. I would like to know if anyone else has
come arcoss this same file and if they have any idea on how I can remove it
from my system?

Two way exists:

(1) Boot your computer in Safe Mode and try to delete them
Do this by repeatedly typing F8 while Windows is starting before
Windows logo appears.Then you'll open the Windows Advanced menu where you
can choose to boot the hard drive in SAFE MODE . While in Safe Mode this file
should not be in use

(2) Download and install Unlocker . Now try to delete and follow Unlocker's
instructions

This will help you kill running processes or unlock files being used

With the help of Unlocker , you may find what is creating(using) these files
and remove if you wish .

this file is being used by the .NET runtime, you have added a new
background program or service that is based on .NET.

don't worry about it, the file is small and will go away after it becomes
a day or two old (and you run the Clean Manager (Disk Cleanup)). it's just
a temp file after all....

Disable the Performance Logs and Alerts service.

smlogsvc.exe = Performance Logs and Alerts Service

Programs such as EasyCleaner can create Perflib_Perfdataxxx.dat files.

Here's more than you may want to know.

Perflib stands for Performance Library. Perfdata stands for Performance
Data.

The %SystemRoot%\System32\Perflib_Perfdataxxx.dat files are created by the
System Monitor. And/or
%userprofile%\Local Settings\Temp\Perflib_Perfdataxxx.dat.
or
C:\Documents and Settings\Your Name Here\Local
Settings\Temp\Perflib_Perfdataxxx.dat. When you shutdown normally, the file
should be deleted.

If you have an abormal shutdown, these files can become orphaned, and
accumulate on your computer.

Under some yet to be determined circumstances, these files can become
orphaned during normal operation.

The Windows Performance tool is composed of two parts: System Monitor and
Performance Logs and Alerts. With System Monitor, you can collect and view
real-time data about memory, disk, processor, network, and other activity in
graph, histogram, or report form.

To open Performance...
Start | Run | Type: perfmon.msc | Click OK

You can view this by opening the Task Manager. The Performance tab displays
a dynamic overview of your computer's performance, such as CPU and various
kinds of memory usage.

Perflib_Perfdataxxx.dat Files Accumulate Under %SystemRoot%\System32

What are the %SystemRoot%\System32\Perflib_Perfdataxxx.dat files?

Description
The Perflib subkey stores configuration data for the Windows Performance
Library, which collects and organizes data for performance tools, such as
System Monitor.

In addition to entries, the Perflib subkey contains a Language-code subkey
for each spoken language you configure for Windows 2000. The Language-code
subkey stores performance counter names and their descriptions in the
specified language. The Language-code subkey is named for the language code
for that language. For example, the counters and descriptions for the
English language are stored in a subkey named 009, the language code for
English (United States).

em
works.I run XP Pro,SP 2,and this is really getting to be a pain in the
butt.Thanks for all the good ideas,will let ya know if any of it
works!

What is the problem? Are they taunting you?
Ohhh.

My guess is that they are created by something running as "system"
rather than "admin" and some braindead messagebox says another person is
using it instead of another security principal or account is using it.

Booting to another dissimilar OS that supports the file system and gives
you admin privileges will probably enable you to delete the files, but
they will be created anew when you return to your regular OS.

Is there some privacy related utility that you are using that makes you
wonder why some things cannot be removed from "temp" places?

Techarena is the new source of web to Usenet article injection. We
should be hearing from EggHeadCafe too.

They wouldn't be so bad if they kept house a little better.
