    OK, so i need to download MSN, Skype, Aim and Yahoo messengers for Windows.. But i'm on a Mac and can't get to windows.. so when i got to messenger.live.com or skype.com it shows me mac version and there is no option to download windows version.. :( Maybe there is a way to make my mac think it's windows..? That would be really nice..

    Oh and yes, i would like to download it from official websites if posssible..

    For Skype, go to skype.com and in the search box type "skype windows". The first search result will take you to the download page for Skype for Windows. This method will work with most sites.

    One could also go into Safari preferences and turn on the "develop" menu item then use it to set your user agent to IE7.
