Exit Messenger completely (this means right clicking the Messenger tray icon and choosing Exit).

Open your registry editor (Start > Run > regedit.exe) and navigate to: for Messenger 8.0: HKCU\Software\Microsoft\MSNMessenger for Messenger 8.1: HKCU\Software\Microsoft\WindowsLive\CommunicationsClient

Once there, you must remove the following subkeys: for Messenger 8.0: Policies for Messenger 8.1: Shared
Close your registry editor and restart Messenger.Make sure you don't delete or modify anything else. Wrong alterations can cause serious problems for Windows.

For those who are not comfortable editing the registry, I've made a registry file which will do these alterations for you. Simply download the file, save it and run it:
or use reginout cleaner
