A huge lot of txt files in Preferences directory

ACT generates a huge lot of txt files (example: NLpreferences206.xmlbad1231200812597.txt, size: 32KB) in directory C:\Documents and Settings\<user>\Application Data\ACT\ACT for Windows 9\Preferences.

The directory contents already exceeds 16 GB.

How can I stop this growing and where are these files used for?

Close ACT! and delete the whole Preferences folder.  When you reopen ACT!, it will rebuild the needed files.
