dont use msn, pfft, its probably the best instant messaging service there is, although there is a few faults it is still the best, i have had the same email for at least 6 years now and dont fancy changing a contact list that has being built up over time. Im sure a lot of people would agree with me on that is the best.

Yahoo Messenger is a better choice as the security is good and there are far more winks than MSN and even let anybody to make their own custom status message. Still I use MSN Messenger, anyway got to try Google Chat.

bloody, emotions, winks, additions they are a load of ****, who really cares about them; obviously people who dont have as much interest in the actual purpose of the program, Instant messaging. Its just extras to try and put more life into a programe with only one inital purpose. As with most things today things become out of hand end exeed the actual purpose of the design, and thus bring it to a end.

Process kill them on start up or remove them from the startup programs thingy.

Otherwise just search for them in windows search. Usually works, although it's probably infected the registry!

Ok if it's a virus the link does not have an exe, but clicking it will download it.

I don't use windows but I think you should get a chance to cancel it.

On mac, even though .exe is windows not mac, there is a still a dialogue box popping up to tell yo it's a program and warning it can be bad, asking for confirimation.

These are the sort of dodgy links..
