Windows 7 Ultimate, Ubuntu

Mine contains a folder "IdentityCRL" which contains a folder "production", which is empty.
It has a history of previous versions. I don't think I've opened any "Live."' apps today.
But I have opened "Live" on the Web.

According to the windows Live Taskforce it is created by the Windows Live Sign-in Assistant. They say the "solution" is to move it to AppData\Roaming\Microsoft.

God knows!
