The .usage logs are never deleted. There should typically be no more than 6 .usage files at any given time, but when you have this problem, you may find hundreds or thousands of usage logs in the logging directory.
You’ll see errors like this in the SharePoint ULS logs when the Usage Import timer job runs:
OWSTIMER.EXE (0x51A0) 0x59E4 SharePoint Foundation Usage Infrastructure a5rv High Failed to delete usage log file‘E:\Logs\ServerName-20130701-2117.usage’ after data import. Exception: System.IO.IOException: The process cannot access the file because it is being used by another process. at System.IO.__Error.WinIOError(Int32 errorCode, String maybeFullPath) at System.IO.FileInfo.MoveTo(String destFileName) at Microsoft.SharePoint.Administration.SPProvisioningAssistant.MoveFileOrDirectory(FileSystemInfo fi, String newPath) at Microsoft.SharePoint.Administration.SPProvisioningAssistant.DeleteFileOrDirectory(FileSystemInfo fi) at Microsoft.SharePoint.Administration.SPUsageLogImporter.ImportUsageLogFiles(List`1 usageLogFileList)
Other symptoms include:
• Missing or incomplete Web Analytics data
• The “Microsoft SharePoint Foundation Usage Data Import” timer job never completes.
• The “Timer Service Recycle” timer job is never able to actually restart the timer service. It tries to pause the Usage Data Import job and cannot, so after ten minutes it skips the recycle.
• Memory bloat (leak) within owstimer.exe. You may see the timer service consume much more memory than normal. Restarting the timer service will bring it back to normal, but it will build up again over time.
• The “Diagnostic Data Provider: Trace Log” timer job intermittently does not import the ULS log data into the Logging database.
This happens when Windows updates KB2775511 or KB2682011 or KB2882822 are applied to the SharePoint servers.
The fix is in the December 2013 Cumulative Update for SharePoint 2010.
If you look at the description for the Foundation package (which is included in the SharePoint server package) here: http://support.microsoft.com/kb/2849981, you will see this description for one of the issues that are fixed:
“After you install hotfix 2775511 or hotfix 2682011 on a SharePoint Server 2010 server, the Usage Provider (.usage) files are not deleted from the file system. Additionally, the .usage files keep growing.”
This is a somewhat generic summarization of the problem that does not include all the known symptoms, but it does fix the issues described in this KB.
Here is the link to the KB and download:
ccmsetup.exe is used by Microsoft System Centre Configuration Manager.
You might find this as a service running on a client computer.
It is usually found in a corporate environment where the client PC’s talk back to a Microsoft System Centre Configuration Manager server.

October 10, 2017—KB4041676 (OS Build 15063.674)
This update should apply via Windows Update – If it does not, or you need to install this manually here is the direct download link.
This update includes quality improvements. No new operating system features are being introduced in this update. Key changes include:
- Addressed issue where some UWP and Centennial apps show a gray icon and display the error message “This app can’t open” on launch.
- Addressed reliability issue that causes the AppReadiness service to stop working.
- Addressed issue where applications that use the Silverlight map stack stop working.

- Addressed issue where the Universal CRT caused the linker (link.exe) to stop working for large projects.

- Addressed issue where the MSMQ performance counter (MSMQ Queue) may not populate queue instances when the server hosts a clustered MSMQ role.
- Addressed issue with the token broker where it was leaking a token that caused sessions to remain allocated after logoff.
- Addressed issue where Personal Identity Verification (PIV) smart card PINs are not cached on a per-application basis. This caused users to see the PIN prompt multiple times in a short time period; normally, the PIN prompt only displays once.
- Addressed issue where using the Cipher.exe /u tool to update Data Recovery Agent (DRA) encryption keys fails unless user certification encryption already exists on the machine.
- Addressed issue where using AppLocker to block a Modern app fails. This issue occurs only with Modern apps that come pre-installed with Windows.

- Addressed issue where creating an iSCSI session on a new OS installation may result in the “Initiator instance does not exist” error when attempting to connect to a target.
- Addressed issue where connecting to RDS applications published using Azure App Proxy fails. The error message is, “Your computer can’t connect to the Remote Desktop Gateway server. Contact your network administrator for assistance”. The error can occur when the RDP cookie size limit is exceeded. This update increased the size of the RDP cookie limit.
- Addressed issue where USBHUB.SYS randomly causes memory corruption that results in random system crashes that are extremely difficult to diagnose.
- Addressed issue that affects the download of some games from the Windows Store during the pre-order phase. Download fails with the error code 0x80070005, and the device attempts to restart the download from the beginning.
- Addressed issue where the ServerSecurityDescriptor registry value does not migrate when you upgrade to Windows 10 1703. As a result, users might not be able to add a printer using the Citrix Print Manager service. Additionally, they might not be able to print to a client redirected printer, a Citrix universal print driver, or a network printer driver using the Citrix universal print driver.
- Security updates to Microsoft Windows Search Component, Windows kernel-mode drivers, Microsoft Graphics Component, Internet Explorer, Windows kernel, Microsoft Edge, Windows Authentication, Windows TPM, Device Guard, Windows Wireless Networking, Windows Storage and Filesystems, Microsoft Windows DNS, Microsoft Scripting Engine, Windows Server, Windows Subsystem for Linux, Microsoft JET Database Engine, and the Windows SMB Server.

The domain 2mdn.net and s0.2mdn.net are owned and used by Google. It is used for Google Ads – Lookup of domain owner here
When you do a Google search for this domain a lot of stuff that shows up that seems to relate to malware (see image below) With topics like “How to delete S0.2mdn.net pop-up completely from your system” and “How to delete S0.2mdn.net pop-up completely from your system” and “s0.2mdn.net Removal Technique” and “How to Remove s0.2mdn.net (Chrome/Edge/Firefox)” the list goes on…
The above examples take you to websites that want you to download (fake) software that will remove this, or ask you to run a tool to scan your PC for this, and any other random stuff you search for, they seem to have a fix for it ! Do not visit such sites or click any links on them, they will probably infect your PC with malware or a virus.
This site is NOT malware, it is just used to show adverts. It is highly unlikely that you have been infected by malware from a Google Adsense advert.
You may also find lots of reference to this in your proxy server or firewall logs. This is because most website host Google Ads and therefore there is a lot of requests to this domain. It will probably appear in your top sites lists, alongside other ad and tracking code used by Google.
The site used to be owned by DoubleClick ad network, but Google now owns this.
If you suspect you have a virus or malware on your computer, do not click and links on random websites when searching for information, contact a computer repair specialist (like ourselves) to check and remove any issues.

When you try to send a meeting request from Outlook you get the following error :
Your message did not reach some or all of the intended recipients.
Subject: Test Message
Sent: 29/03/2012 13:51
The following recipient(s) cannot be reached:
Smith John (Test) on 29/03/2012 13:51
This message could not be sent. Try sending the message again later, or contact your network administrator. Error is [0x80070057-00000000-00000000].
To fix this you need to ensure that the sender of the request has picked the address from the global address book or if that does not resolve the issue try a /cleanprofile or /cleanfreebusy and this should resolve the issue. I have seen this error on Outlook 2003 and 2007 so it may be on other version also.
