Why can I not remove the Sti_Trace.log (or SchedLgU.txt) file?

June 21st, 2012

The Sti_Trace.log file is opened on many machines; most often on Windows ME/2000/XP/Vista. The reason is that the ‘Still Image Monitor’ runs all the time, using this file. You can use msconfig to disable the Still Image Monitor, but as it is of no harm you can add  this log file to the single ignore list.

The same is valid for the SchedLgU.txt; it is the log file of the scheduler. If the scheduler is running, this file is kept open. If you are not using the scheduler, I suggest disabling it, this will not only allow you to back up this file, but also save some RAM.

(To add a problem to the single ignore list, simply right-click on it in the results list, and choose the appropriate menu item.)
