When trying to open the System Monitor, I received an error saying that the files ProcessTable.sgrd and SystemLoad2.sgrd contain malformed XML. The resource graphs no longer appeared after the program loaded.

How can I fix that?

Go to the folder...


I created a folder and moved the two files in to it in case it caused even worse problems. When I started System Monitor the graphs showed up again.

Apparently files in your own home directory are safe to delete if you did not create them.

For the most part... they're safe to delete even if you DID create them. You might be upset with yourself later though. Hee Hee – lornix Jul 5 '12 at 8:34
