    So i got MSN 5, but it keeps on saving random files in my Documents folder. I want to keep it free of that crap. I went to prefs and looked around for 30 mins, but couldn't find how to make it to stop saving, or to save it somewhere else. I don't save any conversations.

    this is the crap, with all the folders open. The main Folder that has this all is the one at the top.

    All the Microsoft apps store files in that folder... at least with Office 04. I guess perhaps you don't have Office 04, so you haven't noticed it? I have the folder too and it is full of other items from the Office suite. Since it is one folder... could you say more about why having it in your Documents folder is so problematic? In any event, I'm not aware of a workaround.

    lol. Well, i just don't like seeing it there. Other than that there is no problem :) . Just there should be an option as to where you can save the crap. In the previous MSN, it didn't save anything.
