I am starting a new thread on this to hopefully focus attention on this very annoying problem.
I now have exactly 1,209 of these "sqlite_xxxx" files in my %windir%\temp folder, dating back to Sep 9, 2008. Three are added on every boot, so this represents 403 boots since that date.
Contrary to what is claimed in many threads on this subject, SA is certainly NOT cleaning up these files.
Please understand, I am not suggesting that there never be any temporary files. The problem is that files that are apparently no longer being used are not being deleted.
Here are three recent threads on this forum on this subject:http://community.mcafee.com/showthread.php?t=226621http://community.mcafee.com/showthread.php?t=227329http://community.mcafee.com/showthread.php?t=228947
In the second of those threads, Peter mentioned that he would bring it up at "our next conference call with McAfee on Monday". That was Jan 30, 2009, and I can't find any report of what the outcome was.
In the last of those threads, member "CWH803" states "This defect began with version 18.104.22.168 of McSACore.exe". I cannot vouch for the accuracy of that, but if true, then certainly this can be fixed.
YoKenny has resorted to using CCleaner's automatic cleanup mechanism, but this should not be necessary.
This same subject has been brought up in older threads on other McAfee products (much of it inaccurate and out of date). Here are four:http://community.mcafee.com/showthread.php?t=171319http://community.mcafee.com/showthread.php?t=173519http://community.mcafee.com/showthread.php?t=189597http://community.mcafee.com/showthread.php?t=193777
In the first of those older threads, Development Manager David Juche commented that these "should clean up when not needed", and that it would be a "good idea" for SA to change these names. That was Aug 8, 2006.
So at this point, I would like to simply ask, is there any chance we can get this fixed sometime soon?
