    WinXP Pro SP3 /WLM 12.0.1606

    Every time I close WLM a .sqm file is created. If I close 10 times a day
    then 10 files are created with increasing number spmdata##.spm so after a
    few years I will end up with a gazillion .spm files. :)

    1. What is the use of these files?
    2. Can they be deleted without causing WLM to crash or acting weirder then
    it is now?

    I don't think you'll end up with very many.

    I've only got 20 of each of the following with numbers 00 to 19.


    It appears that they get reused. After 19 is updated, then it goes back
    to 00.

    In my case, the sqmdata##.sqm files haven't been updated in months,
    whereas the sqmnoopt##.sqm files have been updated recently.

    I've updated to ver. 14 beta and now all I get is 1 sqmnoopt00.sqm file that
    appears only after I close WLM. This is weird.

    Do you have "Help make Microsoft software..." selected at [Tools >]
    Options > General? If so, try switching it off and see if that
