Archived from groups: microsoft>public>windowsxp>general (more info?)

I read the posts on WGA, but last night's update now creates WGAErrLog.txt
in my temp folder. If you delete it, WinXP Pro just recreates it. I really
had no problem with being made to install WGA, but this .txt file annoys me.

Nothing is starting in MSConfig and I do not see any new service running, so
do I have to put up with WinXP's WGAErrLog.txt file?

Thanks for any replies!

Just curious, what does this have to do with the fact that the
WGAErrLog.txt file is permanently stuck in the windows/temp directory?

I don't know but I don't appreciate MS putting something on my computer
and not a) telling me what it is and b) making it so I can't delete it.
