- 0Nov 6, '05 by madwife2002, BSN, RN Senior ModeratorHi,
I want to ask a quick question regarding the msm messenger web site. I would like to have access to use it but everytime I download it and start it running I get horrible virus's, and I have to reboot my system which is a hassle and takes ages. I am convinced it is from the msm web site becauseI dont get virus's very often from else where.
Does anybody else have this problem or it is just me? I have firewalls running and virus systems set up on my computer.
I so desperatly want to use MSM when I go to US to live to be able to communicate with my frends back in Uk.
Any helpfull advice

I also have 2 firewalls... a popup blocker..adsubtract with takes out stuff I dont want.. it has a venus fly trap function to pick up things before they actually enter the computer.. I have 2 virus checkers and a thing called 'stinger' which i run to look for the stray virus.........
ok.. I'm paranoid!

- 0Nov 7, '05 by suzanne4Not sure why you are having issues with the download, especially if you are trying to use the latest version. Are you using a dial-up or broad-band for the download? Never had any problems with it when I added it to the newest computer.
You may want to try Yahoo instead, if nothing else. I use both of them all of the time.
Do you have a virus blocker on your computer that would catch anything?
