well I just thought that msn messenger was full of spyware thats all. anyway I have tryed to install msn messenger before and I kept getting a message saying that msn messenger failed to install and the reason is this "windows\system32\advpack.dll" now I have never seen this before so I just figured that it was some type of spyware, if it isn't and msn isn't full of spyware then I would like to install it but I am not sure of how to fix this problem

it's from microsoft...so....it's pretty safe to say it's cleanish....go to microsoft.com and search that advpack.dll and see what it is...you may be supprised at what you need it for
