It has taken me ages to get it the way I want it, no ads, no banners,
I update will these come back again?



I'm a little confused so bear with me.

What program are you all discussing?

The free messenger client that comes buit into XP (which is what I
this group was for ) doesn't have banner ads or anything on my system
hasn't for years.

It connects and runs fine to everyone on the messenger service and
have all the bells and whistles (AKA security holes ) everyone seems to
mention like "what are you listening to" , avatar photo's etc.

Have I slipped so far into my dotage I have now entered the world of
security through obscurity without noticing? :-(

I downloaded the new MSN Messenger. I don't like it at all! I don't like
the way my mail is displayed. I could care less about who has joined
who's network! I miss my little search space at the bottom. How can I
get the older one back? Is it possible? Would a system restore work or
not? Newer is not always better! I hate it. I'm running XP on my comp.
Also, Now I have to login every time to messenger before I had it set to
just do it on auto. Can I get that back?
