    Windows Live Messenger 8.0 Final (build 8.0.0787.00)

    As the next generation of MSN Messenger, the world's most widely used instant messaging service, Windows Live Messenger goes beyond text IM to help people connect and share with voice, video and more. It also acts as a window to the Internet, connecting people to their e-mail, blogs, search and other Windows Live services with one click of the mouse.

    Windows Live Messenger goes beyond the traditional instant messaging (IM) service, enabling people to connect and share, with free PC-to-PC calls and inexpensive calls from a PC to phones around the world, video calling, easy sharing with Sharing Folders, and more.

    Now for the important stuff: how to hack it to (for instance):
    add a link to my msn to the command bar (inbox, sharing, myspace, etc icons)
    remove the advertising. I've turned off the video nonsense, but the adverts are still displayed.
    remove click here ....customer experience link
    change the background image of the main window
    add a link to mess.be to the help menu
    mess.be's server is overloaded, so I decided to post here.

    Last night, I shot an elephant in my pajamas. How he got in my pajamas, I'll never know.
    love, piaqt

    Here's the mess.be patch attached.

    Thanks to "dwergs" and mess.be for the original download.

    NOTE: Patching Windows Live Messenger infringes Microsoft's Terms of Use. Downloading and installing this software is your own rational choice and Mess.be (and Techzonez) is not responsible in any way.

    BTW, 2 days after the release of build 8.0.0787.00 Microsoft have now updated Windows Live Messenger to build 8.0.0792.00. Details here

    Note: the mess.be patch posted previously will be updated later in the week for this newer build.

    You could also try A-patch, piaqt. Why did they update it so quickly?

    And what do these patches do? @rohit: Because this is Microsoft.
