You are probably not saving them,If you go into Messenger,Tools, Options.Messages, Halfway down Tick the box with Automatically keep history of my conversation.Apply Ok.Underneath it will show you what folder that it is kept in.

Type the error messgae into Google and search.There are quite a few references to this error. May be of some help.
