NetMtg is a good program for holding video chats, or just plain chats, with friends/relatives in any part of the World as long as they have it as well. Though there are many other programs that do the same thing. It does not hurt to leave it on your pc, even if you don't use it.

Net Meeting is just a part of WinXP.
