Re: Over 100GB of cab_xxxx_xx files in C:\Windows\Temp -- WTF?

Well, it looks like it has been lurking on this system for over a year, so I suppose that depends on the definition of "newly added functionality". :wink: (A year old is "new" in the context of Windows 7, I suppose...) It took a number of months for it to cause visible symptoms ...

Re: Cisco ASA keeps killing my SSH connections

Dark Mage, I have to ask, are these running new versions of the ASA IOS? The reason I ask is that on the newer releases of the ASA software, it automatically kills sessions for seemingly no reason at all. One of our vendors pointed that out to us when our Firewall got changed from a Palo Alto 3020 t...

Re: Over 100GB of cab_xxxx_xx files in C:\Windows\Temp -- WTF?

Humorously, I just got finished helping another user with this exact problem. One thing I've noticed as well is that the makecab process likes to eat up a lot of your system power, either CPU cycles or disk IO while this is occurring. I cannot say whether or not this is in Windows 8 or 10. We're nea...

Re: Over 100GB of cab_xxxx_xx files in C:\Windows\Temp -- WTF?

Not a problem! Permissions, huh? I never thought about that even being possible, but I have seen it behave exactly that way before, now that you mention it. I agree, though, it would be nice if it said that it didn't have access to look at the files, so you knew that wasn't the end of it. I think di...

Re: Over 100GB of cab_xxxx_xx files in C:\Windows\Temp -- WTF?

I've seen this a whole bunch lately (last six months or so, probably three dozen machines), though I'm not really sure the exact cause. Yes, it's perfectly safe to delete all these files. They're created by SFC having issues creating .cab files (I don't know what causes this part). I've thus far, fo...
