    "IMPOSSIBLE to Uninstall!"

    June 08, 2012   |   By quandelacyas

    Version: Windows Live Messenger 14.0.8117.0416

    Pros

    When I used it, it was a nice feature, but IM'ing has become an outdated service for me.

    Cons

    Do not want this on my computer, I don't use it nor have any need for it any longer and wish to uninstall it, which so far has proven to be an impossible process.

    "Avoid at all costs"

    January 11, 2012   |   By Vanillaman

    Version: Windows Live Messenger 14.0.8117.0416

    Pros

    None whatsoever

    Cons

    This is why I want to give up on Windows Live Messenger completely. It is almost impossible to install and uninstall. The whole process is utterly infuriating. For some bizarre reason, Messenger has decided not to co-operate, and I can no longer open it. It is clearly not installed on my system anymore. However, whenever I try to reinstall it, I'm blocked, as I am falsely told that I already have it installed? And, you can forget about support. Forums are just another word for "Accountability avoidance". Grrr!!

    Summary

    Utterly infuriating and illogical install process and no support.

    "Live Messenger 11 is a failure"

    December 05, 2011   |   By douggan

    Version: Windows Live Messenger 14.0.8117.0416

    Pros

    Slick and pretty interface
    Operates smoothly
    Integrates facebook
    Free

    Cons

    Option to block contacts removed.
    Bloated with ads, need to use A-Patch to remove ad ware.
    Ugly emoticons.
    Deleted contacts can still contact you.
    Display name is tied to your hotmail account and will not allow use of alias' anymore.
    Adding contacts doesn't work sometimes.

    Summary

    Live messenger used to be known as MSN messenger and it used to be a nice chat program. Now it's become sadly disappointing. Considering the amount of money and technical power Microsoft has at its command it is truly shocking something as awful as Live Messenger can come out of that organisation especially as they had something good before.

    Now we have a chat client full of ads, an interface that automatically opens a gratuitous Windows Live portal window, you can no longer block contacts, adding new contacts sometimes fails and the list goes on.

    Recommend to use something else instead eg Pidgin and wait for MS to hopefully release something decent in Live Messenger 12.
