How to erase zero size files "unp*.tmp.mdmp"?
« on: April 03, 2009, 07:44:33 PM »
There are many zero size files  in the log directory.
They all having names like "unp*.tmp.mdmp".
Seems the main "Awil Software" directory and its subdirectories cannot be changed from Read-only permission.
How can I clean-up and erase the many old zero size temporary files?
They are dated back to February 2006.

Temporarily disable the avast self defense module:
1. Right click the 'a' blue icon on system tray.
2. Programs settings > Troubleshooting (tab)
3. Disable self defense module
4. Delete that files.
5. Enable self defense module again.
