Hi johnnyrocker. It looks good, but I noticed the line:

"Skype, created by the people who brought you KaZaA"

Does that mean it comes loaded with spyware?

ive seen articles about this program before in this forum. The general view semed to be that it was packed with syware.

i ran several checks with spy bot adaware and swat it before using it and it came up clean and continues to do so.

What advantage over messenger ? which I use a lot, voice and webcam ?

I can confirm that there is no spware loaded with it, my daughter has now been using it for a few weeks with no porbs. Also saves on the phone bill!!

Experience with Skype hardly encouraging. I have found a better program at click here called firefly. Works like a charm (been using if for two months now) no advertising.
If there are difficulties finding the download at virbiage try google and firefly.

Enjoy it.

i have been using Skype for a few weeks. i did find some spyware in the download, but have got rid of it ok with ad-aware and spybot.

i use it together with msn messenger which you can use a web cam with.

Skype gets my approval, for what it's worth.
