    i installed live messenger a while ago, and was greeted by the 'my sharing folder' in 'my computer', which messed up the order of the icons. petty, but very annoying! I got rid of it by typing this into run:
    regsvr32 -u -s "C:\Program Files\MSN Messenger\fsshext.dll"

    that worked, i was happy!

    but i just installed the beta of Virtual Earth 3D, and once again i've got this stupid unwanted folder.

    Does anyone know how i can remove it? (preferably forever!) I uninstalled Virtual Earth, that didnt get rid of it.. Its so infruiating that new 'Live' stuff sticks that stupid folder there without asking you, and then makes it stupidly hard to remove! ... garrrrr

    hope someone can help.. :)
