Messenger query

I've been looking through the threads as I'm sure I've seen advice on this before but can't find it. Basically what it is is this.
A friends kids want to be able to chat to their friends using messenger. Now before allowing this he came to me as the last time they did this it really messed his computer up as well as getting him a lot of spam. Now the question I have is this. Is there one of the messanger services his kids can use that basically causes no problems? I've seen that theres different versions of messenger including one called messenger plus I think it was. Is there one he can setup that won't cause a problem or should he just tell them no?

click here is fine.

Messenger Plus is a problem because it comes with free spyware.

MSN Messenger (not plus) will do it if it is set up here

Thank you for that VoG™ I knew there was some of them that was a problem.

And thank you too anskyber. VoG™ is just a bit too quick on the typing and beat you to it.
