Sorry, U don't give us Ur Opp system. If U goto add\remove software, in there, there will B MSN messenger. It's under ADD\REMOVE WINDOWS COMPONENTS. U will need Ur OS disk. Install it from there.

Why don't U want the latest version? It's a lot better.

you will not loose any of your details or contact by upgrading to the latest version.

Yeah the scumbags giving you this software and not charging for it!! They should be strung up!!

The point of having to use the latest version is to avoid conflicts between old and new versions.

I think that said something,can't you be more direct?(LOL)

i think you've missed the point somewhat,

at uni and im not allowed to update messenger by my self and as its a public computer, i dont have access to admin rights to it. so, i need the old version of messenger to work, the operationg system shouldnt matter the computer ill be using has XP but the same happened with my very old 98 system. Microsoft suck? yes they do. i can see the upgrading issue but its not an option. so yes indeed they do suck.
