    Those that have installed the latest version of MSN Messenger, or Windows Live Messenger as it is now called, have probably noticed that it installs a link in My Computer called 'My Sharing Folders'.

    If, like me, you're not interested in this feature of WLM, or you just don't like the way it dumps a shortcut under My Computer, you can remove it by unregistering the Messenger File Sharing Shell Extensions dll.

    do this by going to start > run, and typing in:



    CODE

    regsvr32 -u -s "C:\Program Files\MSN Messenger\fsshext.dll"
