    Can you tell me what file this is?


    When doing a search of the hard disk, I noticed some old (apparently browsing/file access data) in what appears to be a rather large file that I can't delete by any other method I have tried thus far. I'm wondering if anyone recognizes the pattern in this file so I can track it down. I'm thinking it may be an operating system file because attempts to modify it as an administrator were blocked from a low level modification.

    In any event, here is an image of the repeating pattern:

    The main repeating pattern is a URL or file on the computer followed by the $ and what appears to be a class id (32 hexadecimal characters) and the strange 'O's seem to be dividers between items. As I said, the file seems rather large as well. Does anyone have any idea what this file is?

    Well.. it think you should leave the file alone if its not doing any significant damage....however it could be some sort of malware. I am not sure what sort of a file this can be

    btw have you tried running antivirus scans on it???

    You didn't mention the file name and directory location.

    It looks like it's somehow tied with the Kakpersky program. I'd still want to see the full file name including the directory location.
