    Today when I started Messenger 2009, I was FORCED to "update" to a new
    version.
    Could use my old version no more.
    After that I have been busy for hours trying to update, because everytime
    installation ended with error messages.
    Then I removed old version first, cleaned up etc. and tried to install live
    messenger 2011 again.

    What appears on screen now... a big blunt window called 'messenger 2011'
    this must really be a joke !!!
    This new "improved" version! Its like a christmas tree hanging full of
    flashing ads!

    I have been using different versions of messenger in the past for many
    years, but this is really the limit!
    Now I'm going to wipe messenger from all my computers, and I'll go on search
    for sensible alternatives.

    Any suggestions?

    Yep, the new versions of WLM are designed by the 2 year old kid of one of
    the Microsoft people. A very stupid kid also by the looks of it.
    It indeed looks like a big load of crap. I don't know how to get it all back
    but I suggest to do a search over at http://messengergeek.wordpress.com/ .
    That is the site of Jonathan Kay who was here in this newsgroup a lot in the
    past.
