The advertisements within MSN/ Windows Live Messenger appear at the bottom of the main contact list and in your conversation windows. They are rather big and obstructive, particularly if you like a clean and simple layout to Messenger. This guide will provide the solution to remove the ads from Messenger.

Patch those ads out with simple programs

There are two big name patches that will remove the advertisements from MSN/ Windows Live Messenger as well as giving you customisation options to remove other elements you may not enjoy. A-Patch and MessPatch are particularly well designed and effective at doing this job. Just make sure you select the options you want to remove from Messenger, including the advertisements in both the contact list and conversation windows.

Make sure you download the correct version of each patch, as everyone is specifically designed to work with a certain version of MSN or Windows Live Messenger.
