A-Patch 1.40RC1 (build 9) for Windows Live Messenger

A-Patch is a lightweight program designed to enhance your Windows Live Messenger experience. It does this by giving you a multitude of options, over 80, which allow you to customize the look and feel of Windows Live Messenger, even change some functions.

Some of the options include the ability to remove the big advertisement located on the contact list. Another option would be to disable the nudge delay timer, allowing you to send consecutive nudges without having to wait a few seconds in between. Other useful options include removing buttons such as "Activities", "Windows Live Today", and dozens of others buttons, multi-msn, show idle status of other users, and so on.

A-Patch has over 80 options for you to play with which might seem a bit daunting for new users, which is exactly why it comes with a built-in preview window. Basically, you can preview the changes of nearly every option before actually applying it, it really couldn't be easier.

Love this program...

Still leaves a 'my sharing folders' folder in the left-hand pane of explorer even though it's removed from my computer...odd and not causing any difficulties...just annoying to see it there...

Anyone else have this problem...

I've tried removing it via the registry but WLM reinstalls it the next time it loads...

# Added: Enable Sending of "unsafe" Files (.exe, etc)
# Added: Enable Accepting of "unsafe" Files (.exe, etc)

Great...
