ok... so I've got this massive log file on my computer. I only found it after I defragmented my disc. The thing is taking up 1.5GB of my disc space and I can't get rid of it. It's called tvm.log and is in my temporary internet files folder. However, it is hidden. Even when I click "Show Hidden Files" it is still hidden.

I found this one adware detector which detected it, but wouldn't remove it unless I paid them (and frankly, I don't want to)... Here's the report it gave, though...

Scans (basic information only):

Anyone know of a free application that will get rid of it for me? Please reply soon, I don't want this crap on my PC!


PS just so you know. The adware is not physically present. There is no .exe file, I just need to remove the log file which remains.
