Remove "My Shaqring folders"

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:

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