Thanks Ibrahim I have kind of an idea now what to do - will try later this week. Thanks.

Apologies, but it seems I was mistaken. If you go to the share files button in a contact's window, find publish files online and then you'll be presented with two options, share files on windows live and share files using sharing folders. You'll need to select the latter and if a sharing folder isn't in existence, follow the prompts to create one. Remember that your contact at the other end has to accept the invitation to share files. As for installing an older version of messenger goes, you'll only be able to obtain version 8.1 as this was the last standalone version released by Microsoft before it became part of the windows live installation routine and was installed using a different method. As you know, you can only get the latest versions using the installer method. System restore should only be used if you are experiencing system errors or frequent crashes etc, it should not be used to uninstall applications since it only tracks certain system component files. All the best, Ibrahim. ----- Original Message ----- From: Mandy To: access-uk@xxxxxxxxxxxxx Sent: Monday, March 30, 2009 11:55 AM Subject: [access-uk] Re: Windows Live Messenger. Hi Ibrahim . Sorry to be thick about this but please will you email me privately and give me a step-by-step explanation of this because the send a single file option seems to be just that - the other concerned with publish a file online or whatever it is just seems too complicated for words can I no longer just create a sharing file as before? I removed live messenger altogether and tried to install an older version from oldversion.com but couldn't as was told to update. I know on the oldversion.com site it mentions getting a patch from somewhere but I don't know where or whether I can do this. I thought of doing a system restore to take me back to when I had the older version but I've since downloaded a download manager programme that I don't want to lose and also updated to IE8 so figure system restore isn't a good option.

The option to create a sharing folder you'll find in the conversation window. If you tab around to the share files button in the conversation window, you'll have two options, send a single file or photo and publish files online. Go to the first one and sharing folder will be presented as an option there. ----- Original Message ----- From: Mandy To: access-uk Sent: Sunday, March 29, 2009 9:01 PM Subject: [access-uk] Windows Live Messenger. I am using the latest Windows Live Messenger, Jaws 10 with latest update and for some reason I am unable to find the option to create a sharing folder. I was talking to someone about this and he has done it but I cannot. This is something I have frequently done with other versions why might this be? Mandy.
