This is very old news actually.
Messenger Plus! and everything related to it was sold like three to four years ago. And many things (good and bad) have happened since. So, most people who frequent these forums, but also others, already know this since years.

The change from "made by Patchou" to "made by Yuna Software", in the software itself since 2009, is also a dead give away ;-) So, that on its own shouldn't be a reason to uninstall.

However, as for the (still continuous) screwups and recent pure commercially based decisions that Yuna made, well... this and other threads say enough I think.

Not without removing Plus itself, nope
Well that's the end of story. I have been a loyal and faithful plus! user for about 10 years. I helped defend for plus! as someone complained she got adware when trying to install it (Because she carelessly kept those optional ticks), now I am astonished I cannot continue without the tick. I never heard of any software (I mean, real ones) that claims itself must be installed together with adware. As most of you might do, bye bye plus!.

RE: New Installer for Messenger Plus!
Can anyone suggest a chat logging software for Skype? The only feature I use Msgplus is chat logging. I don't like native chat logging because 1) it places the log in system folder and cannot be moved to othr places 2) It allows logging forever but can only review recent 3 months log? (?)
I tried Skyhistory but it seems not working. It crashed upon first run and the latest version was launched in 2011. So it must be dead already.

RE: New Installer for Messenger Plus!
So after using msgplus for more years then i care to remember, im leaving it since it decided to go forced adware on me. Wondered if anyone could tell me of alternatives that supported similar style logging, and perhaps an event viewer?

Thanks.

Well, so long, MsgPlus. You were great, but being forced to install something else just to use a program is not worth it. From what I've read, the installer is full of major bugs, including completely rewriting someone's internet settings. Thanks for all the past stuff, but I should not be forced to install crap just to use a program like this. Goodbye.

(for Skype) 1.05.0.118 from Download.com http://download.cnet.com/Messenger-Plus-for-Skype...50_4-75703798.html choose the Direct Download link. In the event that Download.com upgrade their version to this new junkware version, I have uploaded the 1.05.0.118 installer here http://bayfiles.com/file/KtcD/WKPiPP/Setup-PlusForSkype-1.5.exe

If you want to ditch Messenger Plus! for good, depending on your needs there are alternatives, check out the Skype Apps directory to start with http://shop.skype.com/apps/ ...

Also I am using SkyHistory and it is working fine for me, but there are other chat loggers in the Skype Apps directory I mentioned above.

FYI, the ad-ware components do not work at all under Windows XP, they do not get installed regardless of what checkboxes are selected.

Hi guys,

I found a way to install the latest version without all the adware crap.

I think i cannot discuss it here, so send me a PM to know how to do it!

Regards,
DJVG



The hell with it: <removed>
Zip with all information included and a installer script.

Works on 7 x64, should work on other oses as well.

Have fun with it guys! (i did not modify any plus files!!)

i never assumed that because it said Yuna software, that the owner had changed.

but don't misunderstand... the reason i no longer use it is because of the forced adware. it's just telling, that after the owner has changed, that this is the result.
