Default New Messenger (5 I think) and XP

MS such just trash Windows Messenger altogether and use 3-partied messenger

Greetings David,

This is correct -- the "new" version, MSN Messenger 5, is not an upgrade

to Windows Messenger
4.x -- which is why you have both now running. In fact, if you forcibly

remove Windows
Messenger, Remote Assistance, Whiteboard, and Application Sharing will not


Which process is causing your CPU Usage to go up (Right-click Taskbar,

Task Manager,
Processes tab)?

I saw a new version of messenger on a friends computer, I installed it

mine and it worked fine. Having said that the old version is still there

is the version called by default etc. If I want to use the latest

version I
have to load it seperately.

I have also noticed with the seperate installation running my cpu usage
rockets ?
