What is iesqmdata0.sqm? RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hey

    On some of our Windows 7 SP1 machines is the following file (after deployment):
    C:\Users\Default\AppData\Local\Microsoft\Windows\Temporary Internet Files\Sqm\iesqmdata0.sqm

    The users(domain) are unable to logon to the computer - because the ACL on the file is not set to everyone.

    What is iesqmdata0.sqm?

  • This is a temporary Internet file from Windows Live. It should contain personal information so that it can only be accessed by the owner. It should not be present in a system which should be a sample system.

    Try to make a startup script to delete this file for all computers may resolve this issue.

  • SQM files don't contain any personal information.  It's just usage data about IE in this case.  When you enable the option to help make products better, these files get sent to Microsoft (again, with no personal information).  You should be able to safely delete this file.
