    Error: Unterminated string constant
    Yes   No   

    what does that error mean? I noticed that it happens when the advertisment window changes? any ideas?

    It sounds like a javascript error.

    I can reproduce the error by creating two files:
    * test.html
    * test.js
    in the same directory.  Opening test.html in Internet Explorer, and clicking on the yellow triangle in the bottom-right-hand corner shows the error.

    <h1>Test of Unterminated String Constant</h1>
    <script src="test.js">

    Don't use MSN Messenger, switch back to Windows Messenger 4.7 (it takes a bit of hacking to get it to work on XP SP2 instead of Windows Messenger 4.8)

    I've been fine the past 2 years without it, and I couldn't have been happier Smiley

    No "Fun and Games", no adverts, no "voice clips", no "winks", no "nudges", no clunky UI, I've got 20MB more RAM available to myself, and what it does do (exchange text messages and see prescence) it does great, and that's all I need it to do.
