Freeware of the Day: Live messenger improvement package!

 

 I thought I would share with cyberspace some of the tools that I use with Live messenger to improve it.

First of all if you don't know what live messenger is go here and read my blog posts.

You can download live messenger here : http://download.live.com

or grab the full installer here

Tool 1: A-Patch the messenger customization tool! (free). I am a minimalist, so flashing banners of live messenger are not my thing. They distract me, so I like to reduce the clutter of the UI of messenger. Using A-Patch you can do numerous tweaks (including removing the advertising banners) of live messenger  image
