Remove "My Sharing Folders" From Windows Live Messenger
  

To install Windows Live Messenger, a "file sharing" is created in the workstation, which can share documents with certain contacts. For those who do not use this function and want to remove this element of the job, this is the way forward.

SOLUTION 1: Editing the registry manually

Delete the file-sharing

In the registry (Start> Run> regedit), go to:
HKLM_SOFTWARE \ Microsoft \ Windows \ CurrentVersion \ Explorer \ MyComputer \ NameSpace \ (FC9FB64A-1EB2-4CCF-AF5E-) 1A497A9B5C2D
Add the sign "-" ( 'less') to "(FC9FB64A-1EB2-4CCF-AF5E-) 1A497A9B5C2D" to get:
"- (FC9FB64A-1EB2-4CCF-AF5E-) 1A497A9B5C2D."

Restore the file-sharing
Do the same, but by removing the sign "-" before the registry key

OPTION 2

This solution may not be sustainable.

Click Start, Run and type:
Quote:
regsvr32 /u "%programfiles%\MSN Messenger\fsshext.8.0.0792.00.dll"
Press Enter.
Note that the above file name may vary depending upon the version and build number for Windows Live Messenger. Therefore, it's better to see if the above file (fsshext.8.0.0792.00.dll) exists. For example, in build 0787, the file name may be fsshext.8.0.0787.00.dll.
