Googled that mess patch thing and got a lot of foreign sites...and a few English ones..but my question is:

Do I need this? I have 7.5, which I still think is in beta version..so is it going to do what I need?

I know about all the bloat in it, but I like to use MSN Messenger..even though I have to reload it every time I want to use it. It's always broken for me in my secondary user name. In my primary username it is always up and running. Kinda funny that it is ok in one name but broken in the other. I always have to goto the tools and there I find that I am not on .net passport, but it repairs easily enough.

Will mess patch repair this too?
