    Default Unknown DAT files in temp folder

    Using ZAP 93037, and standalone ForceField, Windows XP. Lately I've been getting some unknown DAT files in the "documents and settings/user/local settings/temp" folder that appears to be dated about the time ForceField shuts down when shutting down Windows to end a session. I don't know for sure they are related to ForceField or not. They are always exactly 1,626 bytes in size, and have a file name in the format below (but the actual letters and numbers appear to vary randomly with each session)

    6DBC95FA-6A7D-50CE-4BC9-7DA632B8BA7C.DAT

    Sometimes there is one at shutdown, sometimes two, but each one is always 1,626 bytes in size.

    I tried to "open" one with Wordpad, since that often allows one to see some evidence of what program might have created it. But when I open one of these, only thing I see is some "machine language" with unknown symbols and code, so I can't trace it to a particular program.

    Has anyone else noticed such files in your user/local settings/temp folder (not the Windows/temp) ? Thanks.
