Windows MSN Messenger - confused

  iscanut 09:04 07 Jun 2004

I had been running Windows Messenger 4.7 without any problems. However, I have read and was advised that i should upgrade to ver 6.2 which I did and removed all traces of 4.7. Windows Update now tells me via an update that I should "update" to version 4.7 as this is for Win XP ( I use XP Home ). I thus reinstalled this and now have two versions. I note that 4.7 is merely styles "Windows Messenger" whereas 6.2 is " MSN Messenger".
What is the difference and what version should I be using ?
