    Try using something for your MSN contacts that doesn't suck, like Adium or even iChat. :D

    Honestly, don't use Microcrap's excuse for a client.

    I use Adium as well, but everyone has their own reasons for the software they use

    OP, was there an uninstaller that came with the .dmg you had for your original version?

    Maybe you can download it again and try to run it

    I just converted to Mac and immediately installed Messenger for Mac and also immediately hated it!!!! So I now use Adium because well thats simple "ITS BETTER" and I can talk to my friends on Facebook without having a facebook tab open :D So much easier

    You don't need to remove the old preference files to use the beta of version 8.

    Download version 8, drag it to Applications, and you're done.
