    I have a friend who uses Windows Live Mail, and he's complained to me that
    it generates .sqm files. I believe these are Software Quality Metrics files
    and are used by Microsoft for error reporting and monitoring of usage
    habits. My question is: is there any way to disable the generation of these
    files and if so how?

    Brian: if those files are indeed what your mate says they are, do they go
    away (or at least not get updated) if you deselect 'Help make Microsoft...'
    on the Options > General tab?

    I'll ask. Thanks.

  4. I don't see the .SQM or .EMF files in "Local Settings - Temp", both types
    apparently being created by WLM in my WinXP-SP2 system, going away or even
    being deleted by the "disk cleanup" utility. I manually clean out this
    folder when I remember to do so.

    I do not have "help make MS software better ..." checked in
