    The new Forced Upgrade Completely Bites the Big One and messes up computers. I used to love it and Now I HATE IT. Especially the forced upon us Skype, which totally messed up my computer and ended up with mulitple files missing incl banking info from my email. I was lucky to be able to use system restore, unlike 4 others I know who had to literally have thier fixed because of it. If it is going to More

    Live messenger is now included as part of Windows Live Essentials. . As part of Windows Live Essentials, I still find it shocking that sites such as softonic are still showing stand alones. In return you get an installer you don't need and often affiliate tools you don't want. MSN is what it is... Good but can always be better... There have been many sign in issues for months now. Pros: Not change More

    Windows Live Messenger. This MSN is so much better than the new 2011 one! The new one is so complicated & I can't even get my head around it :(

  • by Anonymous

    This is really an upgrade. I've used 2011 for close to a year, I thought "Oh it's just something new, I'll get used to it" no, 2011 is a downgrade from 2011. If you have 2011 and you found your way to this site, CONGRATULATIONS ON UPGRADING!

    Is 2009 Messenger really better than 2011 version...?. Having had nothing but error messages for a couple of weeks with Messenger 2011, I followed Elena's instructions to the letter, uninstalled the 2011 programme, and replaced it with the 2009 version through Softonic. Now I have the identical problem with Messenger 2009 - endless error messages and a total inability to sign on. Should I simply g More

    2009 best ever. What a dog the essentials pack turned out to be, 7 out of every 10 users complain it keeps logging in and out and so far no fix has been offered, WLM 2009 was not broken so why try to fix perfection. shame WLM shame

    WINDOWS LIVE MESSENGER 2009. the 2009 version is so much better then the 2010/11 one, I downloaded both and both are rubbish I had all the trouble of un-installing them which took forever. my advice stick to something you know, such as the 2009 version so much easier and user friendly :)

    great!!!!. it's better than QQ, msn is really wonderful. here I want to recommend you a PC cleaner, the software "tuneup360". It's very easy to handle and of course very powerful, you can have try, I'm sure it can improve your computer performance. Pros: better performance. Cons: function

    Great Messenger compared to the awful 2011 version!. I have just had to redownload this version to Windows Live Messenger after my awful experience with the new 2011 version. After using this version for well over a year I am more than happy with it. I suppose they could do with upgrading the themes, but the may thing is this one actually works how it's supposed to. Unlike the 2011 version which k More

    Excellent communication tool except it doesn't work on my 64 bit machine. Excellent tool. However, it doesn't work on 64 bit machines. Great platform for online communications. Customisable skins too!

    Loaded With Ads And Optional Software. Anyone who uses Windows Live Messenger will first notice the ads flashing in the Instant Messenger windows. They will also notice how many different types of software it either requires you to install or tries to get you to install it. The emoticons are nice and the fact you can use custom emoticons are nice as well. The bad sides to me outweigh the good side More

    Great!. In my personal opinion and experience with Windows Live Messenger, I have no complaints at all. I have used the older ones, but I prefer to use the new one. I feel that the new Messenger has much richer apps and does what it is supposed to very well. Microsoft, you have a great product here.....keep up the good work! Pros: Absolutely no problems. Cons: Awesome product!
