a mate of mine keeps telling me his PC has always got a virus, or freezes, or crashes, his words not mine. The Q is could MSN Mess have anything to do with these props. His daughter hopes not as he's turned it off and she's not happy.

You can get viruses with MSN messenger,but only if you accept files to download that you are not sure of,more likley its spyware or just a system fault tell him to run a spyware scan and try a system file check.

This is a stab in the dark as Im not that qualified, but I had something similar with my system and I upgraded the RAM and everything was fine.

Turned out I had too many processes running for 256 to handle which resulted in freezes and dead screens. So if the spy cleaners dont work, maybe its worth trying.
