Windows Live Messenger creating garbage

Every time i use Ccleaner it it shows Windows LM logs and other garbage, taking about 15MB and increasing (unless i clean it with CC) is there anyway to avoid this logs and other temp files? i use WLM 2011 now, but the same happened before with the older version.

If they are your conversations being logged, then you can disable that feature somewhere in Messenger's options.

Other than that I don't think there's anything you can do about the logs being created, just have CCleaner remove them. Besides that it's only 15MB, is that something to worry about these days?

Not 15, but is increasing if i don't clean it. The last time i skipped it it was almost 90MB with no apparent reason because for example, i don't use winks and i know winks can create temps files.

Perhaps your conversations are being logged then, check Messenger's settings.
