[Fixed] World Clock leaves a critical file behind

It leaves a config file in C:\Users\%username%\AppData\Roaming\Macromedia\Flash Player\#SharedObjects\ULU4AQQF\localhost\PortableApps\WorldClockPortable\App\WorldClock\worldclock-flash-clocks.exe\ .

The name of this file is WorldMapColorDataEx.sol .

The file is not saved , and everytime you move to a new computer ( or a cleaning program cleans cookies) it resets to defaults.

I am on a Win 7 computer.

More info

Ok for anyone that maybe looking into this.
For some reason when McAfee Security Center, is installed on a computer.
The /data/ copy of WorldMapColorDataEx.sol is not copyied to /appdata/.
And when World Clock is closed, /appdata/ is not moved back to /data/.

However, on a system that does not have Mcfee, World Map works as expected.

Bug still there

I tried this portable app on an XP machine. It was not running McAfee.
It did have Sophos security.

Close app and restart and setup data lost.
In this state it is unusable for me.

I also note it writes data to C: drive user documents and settings, local settings and application data. I am unsure if these are cleared correctly. For a portable app I would not expect it to scribble on the host machine so much.
