- August 25th: Message displayed to users using versions 8.1 and 8.5 to optionally upgrade
- Mid-September: Those using versions 8.1 or 8.5 will be locked out of the Messenger service and forced to upgrade
- Early-October: Users using an outdated version of Windows Live Messenger 2009 will receive the option to upgrade
- Late-October: Those using older versions of Windows Live Messenger 9 will be locked out of the Messenger service and forced to upgrade
To conclude, this series will stop users normally being able to sign into Windows Live Messenger versions 8.1 and 8.5, while also making those who haven't updated to the second QFE patch to do so by the end of October.
