    agent log file


    In this path C:\Users\User keeps appearing a file called agent.
    As I saw it is a log file. Any ideas what it is and what is creating it?
    I delete it each time and keeps appearing.
    Thanks in advance

    I don't have any strange application or anything that makes this happen. I searched the web and found nothing. I used my antivirus and the malware but it is clean...

    If you open it up using a text editor such as Notepad you may get an idea which program is creating and using it. It presents no danger to your system. It is a tool for whatever program, Mcafee AV as an example, for troubleshooting in the event of a failure.

    The point is that when I open it it contains nothing. The size of this file is 0 bytes!

    Whatever program that created it would only put info if there was a failure of said program. No info, no failure.

    I get that.. So No need to worry then..

    The strange is that I don't know which program. If there is a failure in the specific program I will find out what creates it then!

    Ugh, sorry, didn't see it in the first picture. Seems like an empty text file. You can change it's extension to .bak and see if something complains about missing it, if not, after some time you can just delete it.
