Many xen*.xml files in C:\Windows\SysWOW64



After upgrading to PRTG version, many xen*.xml files are being generated in the folder c:\Windows\SysWOW64.

File names are similar to xen129996005015097860.xml and the file size is about 50 to 100 kB. Up to 30 files per minute are added (about 400000 in about 1 month).

please update to the most recent version of PRTG and delete the mentioned files manually. They are created due to debug code which made it somehow in this stable version of PRTG.
