.sqm files

Hello everybody

Does anyone know what are .sqm files in temp folder? Files are named like this: fwtsqmfile00.sqm, fwtsqmfile01.sqm and so on. Files began to appear after re-installing Windows. And it seems that the files will show up when i turn off the computer.

Yes, I have been using google. That first link was already familiar, but no very helpful. I have tried to stay away from any kind of Customer Experience Improvement Programs and only Windows Live program is Live Mail. Maybe i must join CEIP if that is the way to keep temp folder clean and tidy. But thanks anyway, i continue the investigation.
