Some options have been removed due to them not being needed and some options including the "Live Preview" have been temporarily disabled until a future A-Patch build.

A-Patch is a lightweight program designed to enhance your Windows Live Messenger experience. It does this by giving you a multitude of options, over 70, which allow you to customize the look and feel of Windows Live Messenger, even change some functions. Some of the options include the ability to remove the big advertisement located on the contact list. Another option would be to disable the nudge delay timer, allowing you to send consecutive nudges without having to wait a few seconds in between. Other useful options include removing buttons such as "Activities", "Windows Live Today", and dozens of others buttons, multi-msn, show idle status of other users, and so on.

Some new options have been added for removing the Photos button, the Groups button and the text which is alongside all those buttons on the toolbar.
