Greetings PressF1, I wonder does anyone of you have any idea on displaying bigger picture in MSN Messenger 7? StuffPlug doesn't work with MSN 7 anymore and only MSN 6.2 users and below will see a bigger display picture from their friends. MSN 7 will only see the regular size. Cheers :)

Are you meaning the pic that is displayed in the contact list or the one in the conversation window ?

The one in the contact list can be changed by in messenger clicking tools options then under general select large thumbnails then click apply.

Oh right well then I have no clue whatsoever on how to achieve that or even why one would want a massive display pic :@@:

Solution: Download the latest Messenger Plus (http://www.msgplus.net/) and StuffPlug (http://www.stuffplug.com) , provided that the person you are chatting with is not using MSN Messenger 7 beta version.

Cheers :)

Is it true that MSN Plus includes alot of spyware? :groan:It appears to have a lot of extra stuff (my spyware blockers went mad when I tried to install it), but it appeared to have an uninstall for the spyware (which was odd) and my blockers seemed quite happy after I ran that. So I'd say that yes, it does include a lot of spyware, but it appears you can uninstall them... I'm about to do a full spyware scan, so I'll see how happy they are after that...

Hmmm...

I'm about to do a full spyware scan, so I'll see how happy they are after that...Spybot didn't find anything. MS Antispyware, however, found it - here is what it said about it:
Messenger Plus!
Type: Software Bundler
Threat Level: Moderate
Author: Patchou

Description: Messenger Plus! is an add-on for MSN Messenger. During installation, users may install an adware program called C2Media which is also known as LOP.com.

Advice: This is a low risk application and will not cause direct harm to your computer, removing it is not required. However, it is strongly recommended that you review this application's End User License Agreement (EULA) as well as review the application's privacy policies.

Since this application gives you the option to not install the adware that comes bundled, we recommend ignoring it.So... :)

Is it true that MSN Plus includes alot of spyware?The answer is not a simple 'no'. It does come with spyware, but Messenger Plus has a REAL option of not installing it. Follow each install step carefully, and watch out for the checkbox concerning the sponsor program.

There is a deadly adware bundle inside Messenger Plus named "lop". However, if you look at every screen carefully before clicking "next" during the installation, you should be able to spot a prompt asking you whether you want to support them by installing a toolbar in your brower. Click "no" or something like that.

Cheers :)
