    My Macintosh HD is overloaded with asl files that keeps multiplying. There are in a group called "wheel" and file type is document. Is this some type of virus because it just keeps increasing.

    Sorry if I am not explaining the problem correctly.

    Let me know if further clarification is necessary.

    Mac Pro 2.66 BHz Dual Core Intel Xeon; operating with Leopard 10.5.7

    Hope I can get this rectified soon.

    Thanks

    You have a runaway log file. Delete the offending log, then restart your Mac. If that doesn't clear up the problem, let us know.
