I.E.7 Hotmail add-on question

  Chris Webster 21:05 13 Nov 2006


Just downloaded I.E.7, now when I check my Hotmail account through MSN Messenger I get the following warning

this website wants to run the following add-ons:'MSN Messenger Service' from Microsoft Corporation (unverified publisher)

Does anyone know what this add-on does?

The 'unverified publisher' comment is making me wary of installing it at the moment although my Hotmail account seems very slow since installing I.E.7

Thanks, Chris.

It is harmless - it will launch messenger when you start OE.

Thanks, I'll install it then. Do you know if there's an option to stop messenger auto launching after i've installed the add-on?

Do you mean O.E or I.E?

Cheers, Chris.
