    We need more information so we can better help you. What OS are you using? What browser are you using? Firefox, Safari? What are you downloading, and is it giving an error or something?

    You can't use the Windows version unless you plan to run Windows in a virtual environment or Boot Camp. Download the Mac version from here: http://www.microsoft.com/mac/products/messenger/default.mspx

    Note, due to M$ obviously not being interested in providing up to date quality Mac software, this version still has no A/V and off line messaging for personal accounts.

    The OP can't run Windows in a virtual environment or Boot Camp (unless Virtual PC), they have a G4.
