Hi, Does anyone have any experience of MSN Messenger 7, and Messenger Plus (an add-on for it). I was running MSN6 with plus for a while. I am now querying the safety/stability of both (MSN7).
Since upgrading to MSN7, my PC seems to have become slightly unstable, when running anything else at the same time as messenger. Games have weird crashes for unapparent reasons.
My other concern, is the Messenger Plus add-on. While it asks you to install a sponsor on install (which I refused), there are reports of it containing spyware outside of the sponsor. Some users of it swear blind that there isn't, and neither Spybot, now Ad-Aware pick anything up. However, MS Anti-Spyware picks it up as spyware.
Anyone got any comments about these progs, and their stability/security?
I have been using the beta version and now the full version, and I have noticed that sometimes i can't sign-in for up to 1 hour.... I also experience the dreaded "Windows Blue Screen Of Death" every so often when I am running MSN...
Have you updated your msn-plus to the latest 3.50 version, its a great plug-in from patchou ( i helped translate it into turkish) The new msn and msn-plus! have been fine for me, neither MS anti-spyware, spybot or ad-aware have found anything on my pc.
