    Clever... very clever :D

    I'm all right with the update, though yes it's pretty bloated. And there is no full featured A-Patch for it yet :glare:

    uhh, no you don't need to run messenger with compatbility mode for the above guide. you just follow the steps precisely and run it....no need for any compatbility mode.

    In English (Google Traductor):
    No, you do not understand me. If you use Messenger in compatibility mode with Windows 2000, do not need any patch and Messenger do not ask for any update :D

    En Español:
    No, tu no me entendiste. Si usas Messenger en modo de compatibilidad con Windows 2000, no se necesita ningún parche y no te pide ninguna actualización :D

    Not to burst anyones bubble but the new one in Windows Live Essentials is not bloatware from what I have seen. I know the older one was but this one is good and hell, it does not bug and still start up when you login like the other one did lol.
