Here i will explain how you can remove those annoying advertisements fromWindows Live Messenger.


  • First, you have to make sure that you have the latest version of Windows Live Messenger.
  • If you are not sure, get it here: http://explore.live.com/windows-live-messenger?os=other
  • When you have installed the latest version of Windows Live Messengeryou have to go to this website: http://apatch.org/downloads/
  • Here you download the latest A-Patch for Windows Live Messenger.
  • When you have downloaded the A-Patch, extract it to your Desktop.
  • IMPORTANT: Before you run A-Patch - Make SURE to close downWindows Live Messenger!
  • Now go to your Desktop and run the A-Patch .exe file that you have just extracted.
  • Here you choose that you want to "Patch Messenger" and then click next.
  • ( It might ask you to make a backup of the "Standard" settings of Windows Live Messenger, just say OK and save that )
  • Then you come to a screen where all the goodies are located!
  • You can then tick off "Remove Advertisement" "Remove See More Offerings" and also things such as "Disable Nudge Delay", "Remove Featured Section", "Disable Photo/Video Sharing" and so on.
  • After that you hit "Apply"
  • Now you can open up your Windows Live Messenger again and all the changes you've made should be visible.
