  1. There is a file that keeps generating in my %temp% folder


    Hello , so a few weeks ago suddently I found out that I cannot use the ctrl+c or ctrl+v in a program.


    When I tried to copy and paste something in a text file it showed the file location to this ``PRODUCT_NAME_UNKNOWN_CrashDumpPRODUCT_VERSION_MAJOR_UNKNOWN-PRODUCT_VERSION_MINOR_UNKNOWN-2018-11-19--17-53-10_``


    I even used some anti spyware programs thinking that it would help but nothing happened ... the problem is that a large ammount of files like that one keeps generating in my %temp% file and I don`t know what to do , the only thing that helps me is restarting after booting up my computer , after I restart there are no more files generating. The problem is that if I forget to restart after I boot up my computer , in 1-2 hours there are over 3GB worth of files like that :/


    I tried to look for help online but I couldn`t find anything related to this so I decided to ask for help , maybe someone knows how to fix this annoying problem There is a file that keeps generating in my %temp% folder :D


    Thanks for reading.

    :)

    about temp folder

    Hi Hector,

    The temp folder provides work space for programs. Yes they can be deleted. We suggest that you follow the steps provided by Sangeeta Sarkar on how to delete Temp files on this

    link
    . You may also type in the search box Disk Cleanup and hit enter. It will evaluate your disk and give you a list of folders sizes that can be deleted.

    Generating a .txt based file list in Windows 7

    I want to be able to generate a .txt file that lists all the files and folders in a specific folder on my PC, but don't know the name of any programs that do that. Searched on google a bit and came up with this guide, but it's for XP and I can't seem to find some of the folder options to modify the .bat file. Any suggestions? Thanks

    http://www.theeldergeek.com/file_list_generator.htm

    EDIT: The .bat file will do what I want if it is in the folder I want to do it in, but the option I want to add is having the right click option that it shows.
