Multiple "vse8.8.0.core_install_*" log files on desktop


We have a problem with desktops in our environment that there are multiple log files under "C:\windows\temp\McafeeLogs\" with the name "vse8.8.0.core_install_*.log" along with "vse8.8.0.core_install_*.etl" . All the logs together are 62GB(!!) and it takes almost all the disk space.

I realized new files are written to the disk a couple of times a day.

In order to let the user work, we deleted the most of the files, but there are new files in the folder every day.

Can someone please try to help me understand what task \ process is writing those files?

We are using VSE 8.8.0 (
