Windows Live Messenger taking too much memory
Posted on 2009-05-20
I am using Windows Live Messenger 2009 (Build 14.0.8064.206) on Windows XP SP3. I notice that each time I open a contact's Window it takes 20 seconds for it to be ready to type in. I have 512 MB RAM. It does not matter if I have conversations saved or not.
I have over 230 MB in this folder:
C:\Documents and Settings\<username>\Local Settings\Application Data\Microsoft\Windows Live Contacts.
Why is there so much space taken and how can I get rid of this nonsense files and their backup?
Many thanks in advance.
