I found a Reference
that explains that Windows Live Essentials 2011 v15.4.3508.1109
has a bug in its version of Windows Live Messenger and Windows Live Mail.
According to: Windows Live Blog: an update to Windows Live Essentials 2011
The latest version is Build 15.4.3538.0513 / July 6, 2011; 73 days ago.
So, go to Control Panel\All Control Panel Items\Programs and Features,
and check the Windows Live Essentials
entry to make sure you have the latest and greatest.
If not, right click on it, then left click on Uninstall/Change, give it a few seconds and a dialogue box will open that will allow you to Uninstall or Repair your version of Windows Live Essentials.
You may also want to check Windows Updates in case you may have hidden any Live Essentials
updates, and had forgotten about them.
If you do have the latest or the repair does not help there may still be bugs in the latest version.

So hold on, if a folder is empty, it doesn't use any HDD space? I always deleted empty folders incase they did use even a tiny bit of space.
Hold on there, iRHardcore
They do, and, they do not.
To try and clear the air, this is the best explanation I have found so far: Get IT Done: Save time and resources with Empty Folder Tracker | TechRepublic
If you have a few minutes scroll down to:
Where do empty folders come from?
At first glance, asking where empty folders come from seems pretty silly, but the answer is a bit more complex than you might think. There are actually three sources for empty folders. Let's take a closer look.
And read down to the last paragraph before, Installing the Empty Folder Tracker utility.
Be careful what you delete. I thought about what you said when I read:
Be careful, though: There may be some empty operating system folders that can be deleted but that aren't automatically recreated, which could ultimately cause you problems. So it's extremely important to exercise caution when deleting empty folder related to the operating system.
Since this program is for XP I could not endorse its usage, there are better ones out there for Windows 7 like: Remove Empty Directories (RED) - Freeware for Windows
