This is somewhat scary, so I investigated and determined that my recently installed Vedit v6.15.1 is checking for and setting, if necessary, a run once registry key for a batch file named vedit-cleanup.bat each time it starts.
That is correct.
>My guess is that the section of startup.vdm that does this could be remmed and Vedit would behave much if not exactly as it did in the past. Vedit still attempts to keep track of the files it creates and cleanup after itself? Vedit-cleanup.bat is just in case something slips by or Vedit abnormally ends, right?
That is also correct. Since VEDIT is often used to edit Giga-byte sized files, I don't want giga-byte sized temp files lying around. Just trying to be real clean.

You could delete the ":CLEANUP:" section in the startup.vdm file.
I have tried to make the command run minimized or invisibly, but have not yet managed. I may need to write a Windows program to perform the delete.
