Mess Patch for Windows Live Messenger is a complete plug-in that adds more than 70 new features and improvements to Microsoft’s IM client.

Mess Patch doesn’t have the standard program structure. Instead, it works more like a wizard that walks you through installation and configuration. The program’s options are organized in three main areas (General, Main Window and Conversation Window) and each one of them includes a description.

Using Mess Patch is really simple. Run the file and select the items you want to add, change or improve, from being able to run more than one instance of Messenger to unlocking blocked file extensions, adding avatars to the contact list or customizing the window’s title. When you’re done, launch Windows Live Messenger and all the changes will have been applied straight away. Any applied changes can be undone by running Mess Patch again and selecting the “Restore previous settings” option.

The only drawback to Mess Patch, in our opinion, is the absolute lack of user interface: it would have been nice to have a configuration menu inside Messenger – or as a separate app – to tweak the program’s settings on the spot.

Mess Patch for Windows Live Messenger makes your favorite IM client more powerful and customizable.

Do you use Live Messenger? If so, there are probably loads of things that you'd like to change about it. Now you can, thanks to Mess Patch. This very simple extra lets you modify as much as 77 various settings.

Grouped in three catagories: General Options, start window and conversation window; you will find all kinds of adjustments such as enabling Messenger 'poligamy' or deactivating extensions of blocked files, or even installing new games!

Whats more, if you don't fancy going through every option one by one, you can try any of the six pre-defined combinations that come with Mess Patch.
