Got it nagging me to do it too, so I just pressed okay. Besides, it took like 10 seconds.

I've got 6.0.0602 (obviously a bit old) and it isn't asking me to update!

to find out what is new about an MSN Messenger Update, its not too hard to hit the "What's New" button on the update reminder dialogue.

this takes you to a page informing you that the 6.1.0203 > 6.1.0207/0211 fixes a security issue reported to M$.

Those with Messenger 6.0 are unnaffected, as this is a different, older version and thus does not require the security update. I would advise anyone using MSN to keep the most current version, to prevent the spread of viruses (although it could be argued that it promotes them, since the new update is a security fix ;) )

Hey EP! All good with me, applying for Microsoft MVP right now, should have done this a while ago.

Notifications don't work, I only found your response by coming back to hunt up some threads, if you want, give me your email address so we can keep in touch easier!

EP, glad to see you come back and tidy up...did want to ask a one day favor, I want to enhance my resume , was hoping you could make me administrator for a day, if so, take me right off since I won't be here to do anything, and don't know the slightest about the board, but it would be nice putting "served administrator osnn", if can do, THANKS

Been running around Quora lately, luv it there!
