I had an email from msn saying there was a security alert if running version 5. I have downloaded v6 but havent installed files as i would like to know if it will auto overwrite ir retain address book etc. Is this security problem a big deal? OS is XP Thanks
Thanks for all the help. Installed files for v6, but i now i have 2 icons. Progams listed in control box tell me v6 is there ok, so how do i delete 'old' icon from system tray. Out of sight out of mind and all that Thanks again
Right-click on the arrow hiding your icons and choose properties, then customise "hide inactive icons" - from here you can choose to hide the old program, or go to Contol Panel > Add/Remove Programs and get rid of v5.
I installed version 6 a few weeks ago. Tried to have a video chat with my son who lives locally and also my brother in Australia but could not get any audio. We could see each other OK but no sound. We went over to Yahoo and all was OK. I still prefer Messenger but no good without sound. I would sure like to know how to fix it.
my understanding of MSN is that the stuff you download is only the "access" software you use to view the info that's stored online in your MSN Passport. Just like when you get a new version of a web browser, nothing about the pages you view changes, the software you use is just a bit cleaner / funkier etc etc.
