Basically, the problem is: when I upgraded to the new version of Windows Live Messenger (2009) a folder called "WindowsLiveMessenger" appeared on my desktop. Inside it is something called Transport0.log which contains the text:
"23:10:11.031 4F4:27C ADVCED :: Module:Transport DLL-version:3.5.6872.0 Retail Adv:0" (I think the numbers at the beginning change sometimes, maybe the time or something )
I can delete this folder if I close WLM, but the next time I run WLM it just appears again.
I asked for help on the Windows Live site and received an e-mail which told me to check for spyware and gave me instructions on how to uninstall and reinstall WLM including doing the following:
The following commands delete files that are used when you sign in and the Contacts Cache folders.
i. Click Start, click Run, type %USERPROFILE%\Application Data\Microsoft\ and then press Enter. Delete the IdentityCRL folder.
ii. Click Start, click Run, type %ALLUSERSPROFILE%\Application Data\Microsoft\ and then press Enter. Delete the IdentityCRL folder.
iii. Click Start, click Run, type %USERPROFILE%\Local Settings\Application Data\Microsoft\ and then press Enter. Delete the Windows Live Contacts folder.
Click Start, click Run, type CMD, and then press ENTER to open the command window.
b. Type the following commands exactly as they appear below. Press ENTER after typing each command to execute the command.
Note: In some case you may encounter the error that the key does not exist. If you have typed the command correctly, this may be because the key has already been removed earlier or does not exist on your machine.
REG DELETE "HKLM\Software\Microsoft\Windows Live\Messenger' /f
REG DELETE HKCU\Software\Microsoft\MSNMessenger /f
REG DELETE "HKCU\Software\Microsoft\Windows Live\Communications Clients\Shared" /f
REG DELETE HKCU\Software\Microsoft\IdentityCRL /f
I did all of this but when I reinstalled WLM next time, the folder came back. I know it's not such a massive problem but arghhhh I want it to go away! lol
I'm on XP Pro, Version 2002, SP3 apparently.
