You're the expert
Because messenger is all about expressing yourself, it should be adjusted to suit your every whim. Take control through more than 80 features allowing you to tame Messenger by:
* Customizing the look and feel:
o Move buttons and bars around the interface.
o Place shortcuts to Messenger functions on window toolbars.
o Show all display picture thumbnails on the contact list.
* Removing bloat:
o Paid content.
o Unwanted buttons.
Bypassing Messenger's limitations:
* Run several instances of Messenger simultaneously.
* Send unlimited nudges with no time separation.
* Manage your tabs through TabServe.
* Expand status message options (including Winamp support).
Compatible, multilingual and free!
Mess Patch works on all versions of Windows 9x/XP/2000/Vista, and runs smoothly with Messenger addons such as Messenger Plus! and StuffPlug. Available in over 15 languages, Mess Patch can also speak your language. If you think that's too good to be true, you can even enjoy all these benefits for absolutely no charge, no bundled spyware, adware, or any other crapware. I'm for Mess Patch, but then, what do I know? I'm a bear. I suck the heads off of fish.
* What is polygamy?
Polygamy is the ability to run several instances of Messenger simultaneously, which allows you sign into multiple accounts.
* Why aren't the advertisements being removed?
If you have chosen to remove advertisements then you'll be prompted with a license agreement page. Agreeing to this license will not remove the ads. You'll need to disagree in order to continue with removing the ads.
You are strongly encouraged to thoroughly read the mentioned license since the ads you choose to remove generate the revenue needed to pay the salaries of those who bring you Messenger as well as sponsor charities.
Additionally, removing the ads infringes the End User License Agreement (EULA) to which you agreed to upon installing Messenger. Therefore, removing the ads is your own rational decision to which you are held completely responsible for. We do not encourage you to remove Messenger's ads, but we provide these options to prevent you from resorting to other methods that may harm your system.

TabServe is a service provided by Fanatic Live which allows you to edit Messenger's configuration file. That includes customized tabs, an alternate MSN Today page, and several other settings. Visit the TabServe web page for more information.
