Is there any way to log what file created another? Particularly, I've got a file that keeps creating an iexplore.exe file (I uninstalled it) and its driving me nuts. Thanks! PS: This can be in any <edit>PROGRAMMING</edit> language! [Edited by - Programmer16 on July 26, 2005 9:05:32 PM]

You've got spyware. I'd suggest you download Microsoft AntiSpyware and see if it can zap it. Alternatively, Process Explorer allows you to view and search all handles that all processes have open, including file handles, so you might be able to track down the offending process through there. It's essentially an infinitely more powerful version of the XP Task Manager, so it's useful to have around in general anyway.

Worked like a charm, though I was looking for a programming resolution (this worked fine, just didn't want people to think I was posting in here for no apparent reason.)

There is a unix command called lsof [list open files] which shows open files for each process. Running something like that constantly could be a good programatic way to determine the culprit. In windows, my first approach would be to investigate hooks [such as used by keystroke loggers]. Something similar to keystroke loggers might be able to be done for file creation.
