In my Windows ME box I have a file in C:\WINDOWS\Application Data called
GDIPFONTCACHEV1.dat.
I am asking because I had read on
http://www3.ca.com/securityadvisor/pest/pest.aspx?id=45... that it might
be a part of "WebSearch Toolbar". I was just wondering if anyone would know
if it's normal part of Windows ME and supposed to be there or a possible
indicator that "WebSearch Toolbar" has tried to install itself on my machine
(I'm running "Spywareblaster" kill bit so I'm certain that I'm protected from
malicious ActiveX controls running). Thanks

umm figured it out..
File is created when I run (ohhh how I hate to admit this)
Hallmark Card Studio
The fonts list in it made me try opening all applications that use fonts and
might induce it's creation and low and behold after a process of trial and
error mystery solved!

Awww! You took all the fun out of it, <eg>!

Sometimes--make that oftentimes--being anal about the details of your
system can cause so much unneeded stress. Of course, that's got to be
considered an acceptable price to pay when you consider the disasters
people find themselves in from not being anal enough, <s>.
