Everytime someone hits one of my sites a new file is created called pipe(squential number).flt Eventually ending up with hundreds of thousands of those files, basically for everytime someone hits every site and if I'm not mistaken for every page of every site. For me multiple sites.

On Windows it ends up in
/.../documents and settings/local settings/Temp/

As I said there were thousands. Suggestions.

No firewall just a router and I am not using Apache. Here is an example of a pipe0136.flt. Since I cleared it yesterday I now have 136 pipexxxx.flt files based on cookies. Now I know it's not me going to those sites or pages for sure.

Here is a portion of the top of the file and it includes the code for the entire page. Which I didn't include.

AH HA

After some investigation, it appears to be PHP that is creating the file not geeklog. Sorry!
