Since Windows Live Messenger 2011 has come out Microsoft don't let you allow to use the 2009 version. I will tell you how you can disable the required update.

  • There are a no updates anymore.
  • WLM 2011 can looks like WLM 2009
WLM 2011 does more with Socialmedia, but you can give it the old look:

Live messenger 2011 is for Vista and Windows 7. XP cannot use Live 2011. So this only applies to Vista and Windows 7 users.

The Internet is so big, so powerful and pointless that for some people it is a complete substitute for life.
Andrew Brown (1938-1994)

A learning experience is one of those things that say, "You know that thing you just did? Don't do that." Douglas Adams (1952-2001)

"Imagination is more important than knowledge. Knowledge is limited. Imagination circles the world." Albert Einstein (1879-1955)
