I'm sure I saw the heading of an article on this site about problems MSN Instant Chat were having with a worm, but its disappeared.

I'm ready to reinstall MSN Messenger and wondered if it was safe to do so. I enjoy the instant chat part of this service.

I think the trojan was in msn plus download as a few people i know did get it,it was easly cleaned and did no damage MSN 6.1 should be ok and the onlt other way to get viruses is if you accept files from someone and dont know what it is.
