MotoHelper 2.0.24 Consuming free space

A client of mine's laptop ran out of free space.  I did a scan and noticed the file MotoHelper.log was using it all.   After deleting the file it began to consume all the free space again after a few days.  I uninstalled the MotoHelper software and all is well.  I couldn've tried updating it but the client did not need the software.

The file path is...
C:\Program Files\Motorola\MotoHelper\MotoHelper.log
