go into your control panel and check in the regional and language options and see if anything in there is messed up.

Why not just download trillian and get MSN, YIM, AIM, and ICQ all in one package?

got more features, too. just a little hard to find, but if you google msn messenger 7.5 download , and ur set.

completely forgot about trillian (even tho its on my other monitor....weird)

its great, but its not compatible for webcam and file transfers (least not for me, everybody else i know has gotten it to work)

Yeah, ive also been unsuccessful in using it for some webcam and some file transfers. You can also try out gaim which is another free messenger that's out there.
