On Win7 Pro, I'm running Chrome as my browser. These SQLITE "ETILQS" files show up in the
%temp% dir. I ran
taskmgr to see what's going on. After shutting down my Chrome browser, I noticed that several instances of chrome were still running and consuming memory in a dynamic fashion, even though all chrome programs were shut down, at least from the user's perspective.
The programmer's creed should be to "leave things like you found them." Google's Chrome no longer does that. So, after using Chrome, I peak in the
%temp% dir and see the ETILQS files. Then I press Control+Alt+Del and start
taskmgr's Processes tab, I find the
chrome.exe processes (from 2 to 5), right-click on the one consuming the most memory, and then left-click "end process" and then confirm to end.
Result? The Chrome processes are ended and the temp dir no longer shows any ETILQS files. Chrome is a fine browser, but someone at Google is slipping up ... they're usually more 'tidy' than this.
