Question WUtemp directory

Hello,

is it possible that the program (prime95 23.7.1) is creating a directory WUtemp in the root directory when it is uploading the results/or downloading a new exponent or so? If yes, would it be possible to add a routine that is removing that directory automatically when the data transfer is finished. I hate to have unnecessary directories in my root directory. Thanks!

Best,

Matt

WUtemp has nothing to do with prime95. It contains files if you use the windowsupdate-function (windowsupdate.microsoft.com)

Well, thanks, then Windows-Update must have used the chance to get itself an update while prime95 was communicating with the prime server.

I'm sorry that I have blamed prime95!!!

No big deal. With the latest Windoze OSes the Windows Update function comes preinstalled. Getting the updates is important, but I think that it is activated by default now. With W2K and XP it runs as a service; if you're using one of those and want to shut it off I can tell you how.
