How do I delete 'tvDebug' (or at least its contents) ?

by stephencnet / May 6, 2010 10:59 PM PDT

I have recently updated ZoneAlarm to v9.1.007.002, and also installed Avast.

My modest 40Gb hard drive is now being swallowed fast by an Internet Log file in the windows folder, currently standing at 9Gb! Called "tvDebug". (Don't know if its ZA or Avast causing it)

It won't allow me to delete it, and I can't open it to delete its contents. (It says its too big for notepad, and it won't open with anything else either).How do I get rid of it, and how do I prevent it growing again?

Many thanks Bob - found the cure at this forum - took around 20 seconds to cure the problem!

When I googled my problem originally, I found very little, obviously I had entered a spelling error without realising it. Thanks again......

I had my reason for just links. I wanted to be sure that the usual had been tried.

One of the best French door fridges we've tested

A good-looking fridge with useful features like an auto-filling water pitcher and a temperature-adjustable "FlexZone" drawer. It was a near-flawless performer in our cooling tests.
