I suddenly have lots of sqmdata and sqmnoopt files with a .sqm extension on my c:\ drive. ‘Googling’ only tells me that they are connected with windows live messenger, which I knew as I have recently and reluctantly downloaded it after nagging from my kids. I cannot find out anything about them except that they are to do with user experience. I don’t want them, and if I can’t stop them I will remove messenger. I do not like stuff like this at the best of times. If multiple files are needed and it is difficult to find info on them, I don’t want them, or the program no matter how innocent the program distributor says they are. So can anybody help with what these files are actually for, how, if at all can I stop them from accumulating and why, if they are needed and useful is it so difficult to find out anything about them?
Thanks in advance.
