Ha! perhaps I should change my MN name
Could you accost a young person? and ask them? my son is pretty nifty on it and I know he had loads of problems with updates and downloads and not accepting log in /password.

trillian is a programme which can be used to access you MSN, Yahoo, AOL and a few other messenger services without downloading each individual one (I only use it for MSN).

It's smaller and more secure than MSN too

PLus it's not Microsoft (who I have rather a loathing for LOL)

Open the file you download.

its finished downloading, clicked on file then open and it wants to know what i want to open?

be careful though, my computer caught a virus through msn, and it took 3 days to sort out

Double click on the file you downloaded. When you started downloading it you will have clicked a button marked save. You need to go back to that location.

i didnt click a save button!! oh bugger - i hope this is worth it - page moved so i think i have to download it again?

When you started, it should have asked you where you wanted to save it to. (desktop?) Then when it finished downloading you go back to where you saved it and double click. good luck.
