Out of the blue, my workstation has started generating a document during its (very infrequent) startups. (I reboot my system anywhere between once and never a month.)
At the very end of the boot sequence, I get a “how do you want to open this document” pane. I’ve selected a couple of apps and the issue just disappears. Today I selected Word and it opened this strange little Unicode doc:
=========================================================================== Interface List 11...bc ae c5 5e 3c f6 ......Realtek PCIe GBE Family Controller 1...........................Software Loopback Interface 1 12...00 00 00 00 00 00 00 e0 Microsoft ISATAP Adapter 13...00 00 00 00 00 00 00 e0 Teredo Tunneling Pseudo-Interface =========================================================================== IPv4 Route Table =========================================================================== Active Routes: None Persistent Routes: None IPv6 Route Table =========================================================================== Active Routes: None Persistent Routes: None
No file name or location when I went to save it.
What in the hell is generating this, and why? The only recent change has been an upgrade from AVG 2011 to 2013.
For however it might be related, my system screensaver won’t kick in, either. Reboots haven’t fixed that.
