But yea, I use mine for AIM and OCN while gaming. Have it sitting right on top of my case next to me lol.
I think I may just go back to windows 2000...xp is slow and drivers are funny.

does windows live messenger work on windows 2000?
Meh...

Hm. It may. I still have XP installed on mine from messing around but I should have 2000 back on it by later tonight. I'll let you know unless someone else chimes in.
