Please to read the page to find out if you meet the system requirements.
Step 2: Install
Now find the upgrade. It should be somewhere on your computer depending where you saved it. If you chose open when the download box appeared, then you should already have the upgrade opened. If your not sure how the upgrade icon looks, check out the screen-shot below. Then just follow the prompts and Voila! Your upgrade is installed! This is where you can chose to wander off on your own and explore the different features of Messenger Plus! by yourself, which is what I did. I do recommend that you read the rest of this Instructable so I can give you some hints and tips, and some gadgets I recommend you Install.
Step 3: The Cool Stuff
As the title suggests, this step is about the cool stuff. The cool gadgets that I told you about are called scripts. You can download scripts from the website below: (again, this website is certified by Microsoft).
There are all different types of scripts. What you choose is completely up to yourself, but here are some scripts I would recommend:
1. NudgesToolsScript 1.38
This script lets you send nudges without the "you can't send nudges that often" message.
2. Plus! Mail 1.9
This script lets you send emails using messenger.
3. StealDP 1.1
This script let's you steal your contacts' Display Pictures.
4. Someone Said 3.1
This lets you copy someone Else's name and talk as someone else. It's a great joke.
5. Slang Replacer 1.0
This script replaces abbreviations with full words, for example: BRB changes to Be Right Back.
Step 4: Get a New Look
Time to get a new look for MSN. Here's link to get new themes (skins):
I don't really like skins, so naturally, I don't know many, but here is one skin that I liked best (be careful though, I had some trouble using it, so just try it, and switch back to your normal MSN look!):
Snow Leopard 1.0.3 (WaveBETA)
This customizes your MSN to make it look like Apple Mac.
