Windows Messenger

By josephjames10 ·
I am running Windows XP on 3 computers with Internet Sharing. Recently I updated Windows Messenger with newer version. But after updates I noticed that machine I updated is giving problem while signing in Windows Messenger. If I log on as an administrator prevelidge Windows Messenger works fine. But on a normal user it does not work whereas Yahoo Messenger works.

Windows Messenger

My recomendation would be to dump Windows Messenger, and use Trillian instead.

2 advantages;
Trillian works with all the other messenger clients. You don't need to open different programs to chat with people on different services.

Trillian doesn't take hold of the system like Windows Messenger does.
I didn't like it that I could not open OE or IE without having Windows Messenger open.
