Does Windows Messenger have a purpose besides connecting you to a chat room, I have it blocked through my Firewall at the moment, as I personaly never access it, but am I inadvertedly blocking important messages (updates etc.) from Microsoft by doing this. Should I allow it???

No it dosn't it's seperate from Windows updates (ctitcal update etc) not related to it. The only update you will receieve via messenger is an update for messenger itself.

Just leave it as it is.
