There were a few things about the new AOL Instant Messenger that I did not like that is when this patch was made. This patch does the following to the buddy list. Removes the Advertisement, the Search Bar, the bottom line of buttons and it stops the buddy info popup when hovering over your buddys names. For a better idea check the snapshot. Errors Fixed: The old version of this patch resulted in the inability to sign out successfully this has been fixed and running this patch over the old patch will work fine. I had also run into the problem of my exe compiler not working correctly the program should work perfectly now.
