Hi there, we have Win 98 on both our computers, and have had requests from friends overseas to install MSN. Is it safe, as I have heard horror stories regarding viruses, crashes etc caused by MSN. I have good anti virus protection, firewall etc. And which version would be good for 98? Thank you vey much for any advice..

It is as safe as the operator using the software. Eg. receiving and opening files without scanning for viruses is begging for trouble. A Windows 98 computer here is using MSN version 6, which I think is the latest version, with no problems.
