Basically the Microsoft site is down.
Which is very devastating because I can not download any older MSN messenger unless I upgrade to the newest, of which is on a Microsoft site.
Please help me. :)
And I'm currently running on a Windows XP computer.

Takes a lot to bring Microsoft's site down. Site's fine.
Anyway why do you want to download old Messenger versions when you admit you can't use any of them anyway?

If you can not get to the Microsoft site, then you may have other problems.
Are there ant other sites you can not get to?

Go to OldVersion.com for the old stuff.

Are you using Firefox or IE to get to microsoft. If Firefox, you need the IE addon.

I have both browsers, but I've tried on them both?
IE add on? Where can I find that?
