Messenger tends to slow down when improper compatibility settings are set for msnmsgr.exe. The setup of Messenger Plus! now resets the compatibility settings set for Messenger in Windows Vista and above.

That's the reason given by the Messenger Plus! Live changelog.  I would argue that if it's a big enough reason for the software to do this by default, then it should be used.

Furthermore, if you've been doing it "since day one" then you won't even realise that it's running slow :)

Good point :D
WLM starts in about 0.5-1 sec, then it's 3-5 sec login delay and "desktop contacts" appear after about 2 more sec, so total it's about 8 sec for wlm to fully start...not too bad I'd say...

It's not to do with how long it takes to load, or to appear....it may just be running slowly all the time.

Either way, compatibility mode is not recommended.  If you want to use it at your own risk, then fine, but please don't recommend it to other people as a "solution", when in fact they aren't experiencing a problem, they're experiencing intended behaviour

not trying to argue or anything, you are right, but IMO MPL! should grant user's settings as they think fit them, not what MPL! thinks should be better for the user, especially when it's an update of already installed MPL!...or at least give the user a choice instead of forcibly change their settings...

Such things were discussed before, see When Plus! is updated, compatability mode changes. . I agree, at the least a notice message of the compatibility mode settings being removed would be nice.
Finish the problem
