I’ve learned J this week that having a 2.2GB user profile has a lot more chance to be corrupted very soon than smaller ones. And that was the case this last week-end where I had to create a new profile after I have had a lot of problems with really strange behaviors from different softwares, especially McAfee VirusScan which crashed every time I launched it.
Indeed, after 6 years of good services, my main account for development, office work and all other stuff went corrupted, and when I checked it, I found it was 2.2GB of size ! Wow, I am impressed how a profile can grow. Ok, it is under Windows 2000, I have never experienced this situation with Windows XP but it seems that it could also happen on this OS….
