What is ffastunT.fxx? It recently filled all the available space on my hard drive as a single 2.2 GB file. Is it related to ffastun Find Fast files?

what I suggest you to do, is delete the files. go to the control panel, FAST FIND, and choose an option CLOSE AND STOP UPDATING or something called like that. I do not use it. It is imcompatible with WIN95 98, the best is to go to FINDFAST.EXE and delete it.
unless you need it which is not of so much importance.

fast find automatically creates the index files on each local drive for all office documents that are opened whit the open dialog boxes.

for it to have taken up 2gig, then I would say that something went rather wrong with it (but that s microsoft fo ya), or you have been opening a heck of a lot of documents. Anyway, yes it is a part of the fast find files, and feel free to delete it.

as with istal's comment, if your not using it, I would suggest loading Control Panel, selecting Find Fast, clicking it's Index Menu, then pressing Delete Index, select the drive you want to delete the index from, press ok

optionally, you can now from the Index Menu, press Close to close Find Fast, or Close and Stop to stop using Find Fast

its a dog-eat-dog world, you need to learn to press the ANSWER option and not the COMMENT option, still if williamed feels that he wants to give the points to you then he can reject my answer (which is a bit more detailed :) and and you can submit an answer again and he can give the points to you.

So what was with the capital T? Every other reference I have found to ffastun never mentions T. At any rate, am I assured that it is not a virus?
