|You guys seems a bit over-concerned about the potential reports being made on you, I mean there's just no way to operate without creating records or being seen, on the internet. You might block up 23 holes where info is being stored and so potentially reported from, but I'm convinced you'd never plug them all up, So it kind of makes it moot to bother even with the first 23.. Best solution: don't do things online you wouldn't want to have to talk to a judge about (of course if your friend's computer goes online and does stuff, oh well.... but i certainly wouldn't recommend this of course).|
Now as to this tracelog you want to remove. You cannot delete it. However, if you have vista or 7, just paste the name of the file in the start-ball search box / it will show it to you / right click on it, and chose "go to location of file...once you're there, you'll find it will never let you delete it, its always being used by another process (WIA)( and you cant find that in task manager to shut it off). SO DO THIS: KEEP THE FILE, JUST DELETE ITS CONTENTS ---> open the file with windows notepad (thats in your tools, in start menu) /// blue over all but one character (just in case it won't let you save an empty document) // hit backspace to make everything on the document disappear // NOW, LISTEN, IMPORTANT --> You cannot save it BUT YOU CAN "save it as" the same document in the same location, and when it tells you there's already a file by that name there, and asks if you'd like to replace it, say yes. BINGO! Trace log is empty
By the way, I do the work of "plugging up 23 security leaks" myself (even though I started by saying it's pointless! yes) - and one result I noticed is my trace log listed nothing but errors!! I have it stymied!! LOL (yay! "That's one small step for "User", one...well, small step *ahem* (yea, I get a little carried away sometimes, k bye good luck fighting the invasions of the corporate world and their electrocution device-toting bully friends...
EDIT: Having said all that, "computereater" (above me here) may be right about being able to delete it in safe mode, but I figure windows will just recreate it on reboot, so there's no need to delete it, just empty it, as I described.
