Had this happen after running bootvis.exe on an XP machine. To
fix it you might want to try the following:

Go to Start -> Run and enter regedit.exe in the Open box.
Navigate to this location:

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Control\WMI\GlobalLogger

In the right hand pane look for a value titled Starter.
Right click on that value and select Modify from the drop down
menu.
Change the Value data to 0.
Close the registry editor.

See if you can delete the file. Reboot and see if it gets
recreated.

Good luck

Hi Nepatsfan,

Good info. I had run Bootvis.
The global logger was turned on and I turned it off in the Registry in the
way you suggested.
I deleted it with GIPO utilities at a reboot and that seems to have fixed
it.
(Wesley your command did not work in my system)

Thank you both for helping

Glad to hear you've got that fixed. I'm not sure but I think the
command that Wes passed along, tracelog.exe, doesn't work in XP
Home Edition.

tracelog.exe will work with XP Home if it is installed.
tracelog.exe is on both the Home and Pro CDs in \SUPPORT\TOOLS.

I seem to forget where I got all the things from that are loaded on my
machine.
