Woh, larney, settle down boy. Grow up a bit. Fighting about patches? Wow, what is next, browsers? :p

Is there a site which gives a comparison on the two patches? I remember there was one a while ago but I can't find it anymore. I use the one with the most features and at the moment it is Mess Patch with over 80 features. Will you be trying to match and beat Mess Patch Ahmz?

Erm, the patch does not really remove the Sharing Folder.

From my attached screenshot, you still can see the Sharing Folder on the left.

Can try to set it to completely remove?

I have been using this program for a long time now, and I love it. I use it on every install on every computer. The new preview feature is rad! Thanks Ahmad!

Can you provide a screenshot of the whole screen please? Reason being is that it only removes the shortcut inside the "(My) Computer" window and not in any menu lists, or maybe that's what you meant?

Navigate to "HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\explorer\MyComputer\NameSpace" and delete "{FC9FB64A-1EB2-4CCF-AF5E-1A497A9B5C2D}" key

Sharing Folders will cease to work if you delete that.

But is it safe to do so? Cause I don't even use Sharing Folder anyway. And this sharing folder we are talking about is MSN one right? :)

It's safe to delete if you don't want to use (msn) Sharing Folders.

I don't like/use sharing folder so I wouldn't mind if it ceased to work. I even tried to unregister it (regsvr32.exe /u "C:\Program Files\Windows Live\Messenger\fsshext.8.5.1235.0517.dll") but it kept re-registering upon re-starting of WLM 8.5 Beta :(

Is it just me or did this patch once upon a time have the option to throw all the "mobile" contacts into the "offline" group?

Think its more likely to be a change in the application that changed that, would be cool to merge those two groups tho as I never buy mobile credit.
