I am trying to find the program that opens a file called "stats.mst"  It is a Webroot - Windows Washer log file - pulled from the file.

Can anyone help me?

According to this website,

It is as you indicate, part of Webroot. There are several .exe files listed in the programfilesdir+\webroot\washer\ directory, so I would guess that it's one of them.

One thing you could try is to rename that file and see if it complains. The complainer should be in the error window and that would be the program you are looking for.

Cheers,

Gary

When I open it in excel it tells me it's not a recognizeable format.

When I renamed it, the error message said it's not a recognizeable file format and when I tried to use the web service to find the appropriate program it just took me to the MSW File assoc page and says Windows doesn't recognize this type of file.

aarrgghh !!!

wwdist.exe keeps this file open, so it's a data file or plugin from the looks of it.

Actually that should be wwdisp.exe.  

It is a process relating to the Webroot Window Washer software according to the website that dclive and myself posted above.
