Default Turning off Onecare on Messenger Live

Hi all,

Does anybody know if it is possible to turn the Onecare Safety Scanning software that Msn Messenger seems to mandate. I share lots of photos with friends, and now its gone from a quick 300kb drag and drop 5 second exchange to a monotonous wait and delay from this scanning software.

I mean, I know their are people who can't discern a virus being sent to them, but I would rather scan only the files that I want to scan.

Any help is greatly appreciated.
