Recently .sqm files started appearing on my c drive.

C:\

sqmnoopt00.sqm
sqmnoopt01.sqm
..
..



What are these files? A new sqm file seems to appear on my C:\ every hour.

I think I figured it out. It has something to do with the latest build of MSN Messanger (566). Everytime I sign in, it creates one of those files on my C drive.

Same here. Must be MSN Live. Reverted back to Trillian anyway- and I thought 3.1 Pro used my memory- msn 8 is a giant cow in comparison. A greedy cow.

Stupid .sqm files make my c:\ look messy.

I got these too, I thought they were some kind of virus at first because I found 2 more files 'infected' and 'pending' there too.

I didnt notice them at first though, as they were hidden files.

I've recently had a cleanup. Uninstalled loads of stuff, inluding anything 'Live', except WLM.
