Many exspad<PID>.err files are created under "%TEMP%\CVU_<PSR>_<Server_name>$\scratch" directory after executing exectask.exe and they remain there forever, each file size is 0 byte.
If Oracle Clusterware is monitored by Oracle Enterprise Manager (OEM), exspad<PID>.err files can be accumulated because OEM frequently uses exectask.exe.
