    Hey there, this recently came up and i have no idea where / how i got it nor how to get rid of it.

    My msn screen name changes every single time i log onto msn, I have tested on a my laptop and my desktop (both mac, different versions of msn though laptop is 7.0 desktop is 6.0) and i i have relogged on both and the name always comes up as the same upon every log in

    BAHEHELKJD-ur not aloud to know

    At first i thought it was someone messing with me, but its not (changed my pw and stuff) and it happens immediately, as if it is part of the login/logout script.

    Anyone have any ideas on this? I scanned the whole comp with McAFee virus scanner and couldn't find anything. Deleted and reinstalled MSN (from a different download too) changed pw, secret question etc etc.

    MSN is not online and sending out trojans or whatever when i am not there or anything pointing towards that. Is there some sort of setting or? i have looked through preferences and everything but am coming up blank on this one.

    Any help would be appreciated.

    same issue here, maybe they are doing some sort of upgrade for the release of msn messenger 8 for mac, but whatever it is, its annoying, each time i log in i see my email address
