    Hi Guys

    I have an issue with the removal or deletion of toolbar_log.txt

    Currently the file size is 19.4GB yes not a typo

    This is an AVG glitch

    I have uninstalled AVG and may reinstall


    But I want to remove the file and restore some disc space

    How do I do this?

    File location is guest\appdata\local\temp\toolbar_log.txt all I get told is the file is to big to open in note pad

    It seems that this log file is created by AVG anti-virus and updating the anti-virus should resolve the issue. You can go ahead and delete it, however, after restarting the computer, if the issue occurs again, you can try this work around:

    a. Right-click on the log file and select Properties.

    b. Click on the box next to the option: Read-only and check if the issue is resolved
