Looks like another “non-optional” Windows update..!5B410F7FD930829E!82557.entry?wa=wsignin1.0&sa=921717585

If you use Microsoft Messenger, you may get a forced upgrade later this month. If you are using version 8.1 or 8.5, you will be offered the upgrade (actually, this was started on August 25). Starting Mid September, there will be a mandatory upgrade for users of version 8.1 & 8.5 and 14.0. Late October, Live Messenger will not work unless it has been upgraded.

Here’s some of the text. See the link for more details and some example screen shots.

“First Phase, Optional Upgrade:
The optional upgrade will happen in two stages:
Starting Aug. 25, customers using versions 8.1 or 8.5 were asked to upgrade their client.
Starting early Oct., all customers using versions 14.0 (but not the latest release 14.0.8089) will be asked to upgrade their client.
The upgrade at this time is optional. Customers who haven’t upgraded during the optional phase will be required to do so during the second phase. 

Second Phase, Mandatory Upgrade:
The mandatory upgrade will happen in three stages:
Starting mid-Sept., all customers using Messenger 8.1 or 8.5 will be required to upgrade their version of Windows Live Messenger.
Starting late Oct., all customers using Messenger 14.0 will be required to upgrade their version of Windows Live Messenger.
To ensure that we are protecting customers, those who do not administer the upgrade will not be able to sign in to Messenger after this time.
