EDIT: since I figured out most of this stuff on my own... Just 2 things. Can I put bootsqm in a folder somewhere? And 2, if anyone doesn't mind explaining, what exactly IS bootsqm?


Hey, I'm wondering if someone could tell me what bootsqm.dat is? I mean considering it has boot in the name I'm assuming it boots something, and it's coming up as clean so I really don't care, but I'm a little curious about if this is something normal. The reaon I'm wondering is because I figure if it was an adobe file or a system file, it would be in a folder wouldnt it?

It's just sitting there on my local drive (c:\) without even being in a folder... Kinda bugs me. I think it may be on my xp as well... not sure.

Oh, and sorry if this is a waste of a thread, but I just want to be safe considering I'm using a beta AV right now (it's nice but idk how reliable it is, it passed my tests though), and I want to be sure I don't get an infection for another month or so when I get Eset smart security 4 (building this computer robbed me =(

EDIT: does nobody know about this? Should I just delete it to be safe?
To make this more... on topic, is it recomended to get ESET smart security 4, or wait until they come out with a W7 specific AV? Because buying eset in august and then having a W7 AV come out 2 months later would suck...
