Hi, I'm using Windows Live Messenger (Build 8.5.1302.1018). Does anyone know how to remove the Warning I get in all my messenger windows?

"Never give out your password or credit card number in an instant message conversation."

Thanks in advance. :)

It's annoying, I already know I don't need to give out my password or credit card number, common sense.

This is a built-in part of Messenger and is not removable.
One could argue its Microsoft covering their own back so that if fraud or whatever was committed, it wouldn't be their problem.
