Windows 7.5 messenger vs Windows live messenger

Hi, I would like to *** in here and confirm this problem. I just loaded
Messenger 7.5 and I assumed that it would remove or replace Messenger 4.7.
My problem is that now I have both. I use MSN Explorer and IE 7.0 and with
the two messengers I find that a good part of the time it will not sign in
and then if it does, it will not register those on line.

Just install Windows Live Messenger over the top of MSN messenger 7.5. Once
installed you will have only Windows Live Messenger and all your addresses
will be imported to the new WLM.

You're confusing Windows Messenger 4.7 which is built into the Windows XP
Operating system with MSN Messenger 7.5 which is a separate instant
messaging program offered from Microsoft. You do NOT need to uninstall
Windows Messenger 4.7, the two messaging programs can co-exist together.
Matter of fact, if you use Remote Assistance, MSN Messenger 7.5 and Windows
Live Messenger need Windows Messenger to use this feature.

If you would like to disable Windows Messenger from running at the same time
as MSN Messenger, open Windows Messenger/Tools/Options/Preferences.
Un-check "Run Windows Messenger when Windows starts" and "Allow Windows
Messenger to run in the background" and select OK.
