I have just uploaded a BT broadband installation program and find it has created 2 yahoo 'crashlog' files totalling 16 GB. BT disclaim any responsibility. The files can only be seen on a defrag log but otherwise can't be found. This is what the larger one looks like -
14.75 GB \Documents and Settings\Barry\Application Data\Yahoo!\Companion\CrashLogs\ytdump-2009.9.20.2-1270201150.log
Anyone know how I can find and delete this file which does not appear under 'Applications'?
If you have Malawarebytes (free anti malware), in the tools option there is "File Assasin" that is said to delete locked files. I have not used it but it may be worth a try. Also if you can show hidden files, try dragging it to the recycle bin. Another way is to drag it to the desktop, then restart in safe mode and then drag it to the recycle bin.
Thanks for your response guys - with your help I have now isolated the offending files. Before I press delete (really I have no option) does anyone know if files of this type have any current/ongoing application or (as they imply) they are just records of events? Thanks again.
