Windows Live Messenger seems extremely slow on my Windows 7 machine. Double click on the icon and it is 10 seconds before the main screen is shown - probably because it is loading all sorts of adverts and social feeds (all facebook etc social feeds are switched off)

Is there any way I can speed it up by stopping it loading all the adverts etc?

I have had several times when a chat window is completely blank as well!
