It is an OS created data file related to your Profile and should left alone.

If you have worries on a data files, send it to Virus Total.  It will check it with more than 50, participating, anti malware vendors.

Malwarebytes and KVRT don't see this file as virus so most likely this file is safe.

Just before that, I did not see this file and didn’t know what this was like since I’m not a programmer, for this reason I decided to ask.

Is this safe to send this file to Virus Total ?

If this file is related to OS, logically this can cause a certain threat to anonymity and security, considering that everything goes to open access there, but as I said, I'm not a programmer so I could be wrong.

Yes, your presumptions have no basis in fact.

There are 100's of files in the OS.  Many are caches too.  Why single this file out ?

Here's the Virus Total report for my Win7 User Profile

Here's the Virus Total report for another file from my Win7 User Profile on another PC

In any case, thanks for helping me figure this out.

I will need to learn more about how the system works, any tips on this ?

Maybe some sites for dummies which will help you figure out what file is responsible for, as in this case.

Exactly.  It is a OS generated file that is normal.

Virus Total is a simple way to check any file.

As you now see, there are 3 Virus Total Reports for three copies of "GDIPFONTCACHEV1.DAT".  I think you'll find every User Profile has one.

I has one more question, because I delete GDIPFONTCACHEV1.DAT do I need to restore previous version of this file or this is not ctritical ?
