Windows server 2003 SP2, WSS2 installed, FP2002 server extensions installed.

Please help,
I find that I have got a huge
sptimer.mem file (3867 mega) on my C: drive.
Surely this not normal and how can I get rid of this, I understand it is
something to do with the timer service????

Not sure why exactly this occurs but yes its SharePoint Timer Service, disable the service, delete the file and it will not be re-created.
