I know I'm gonna feel stupid (what's new), but I'm tearing my hair out trying to figure out what the files "transporter" and "transporter assistant" are doing in my extension folder. I'm sure it came with something I must've installed, but I don't recall what.

Filetype is INIT and creator is TRNS. Anyone have a clue?

(C&G website dbase doesn't come up with anything, neither did a search on versiontracker, neither did anywhere else I tried.)

Thanks...

If in doubt - delete.
See what doesn't work
Check the date on the files.
Check your installation logs if you keep them.
I say get rid of 'em, they sound sus.

You can download the 30-Day Trial of Conflict Catcher (http://www.casadyg.com/downloads/default.html) and see what it says. They have an extensive "dictionary" of control panels and extensions. If they don't have it in there they it probably really isn't something you need.

Extension Overload. Better than Conflict Catcher.

Before posting, I had already checked both Extensions Overload and Conflict Catcher... no help from either. I also have already disabled the crittur but can't see a difference, so I was just kind of looking for clues. Thanks for posting though...

Try Inform INIT (shareware)
Ya gotta applaud those bunnies for sacrificing their hearing just so some guy in Yonkers can have better TV reception.

There's a service available for transferring files from one site, on the internet, to another. It's called "Transporter" and cost $7.00 a month. Maybe you tried it out at one time and the extensions are left over from it?
