I have a Windows 2000 server running IIS that has a wierd looking hidden
file that can't be accessed because it is "in use". The name is a very
cryptic "_vxFiVspCacheFile_0.tmp". Could this be a keylogger file or
something? Spyware? I cannot find anything like this on any other server.

Thanks

Looks like the Veritas Net Backup agent cache file.

That is what I was thinking and I also posted to the group there. Wonder
why it will not backup any longer.

Thanks. I breath a little easier now.
