    I'm so glad I got a Mac rather than ordinary laptop. I cant believe how easy it is to use (so far!)

    But just a few things.

    When i try and copy a link, i highlight the link, click on copy but the highlight goes as soon as i get the box up for it, so when i click copy then try and paste it nothing appears. How do I copy and paste?

    I've downloaded microsoft messenger for mac but i can't do the same things i could on the windows version. Is that right or is there another version I can download? I've got version 5.1.1

    Is it ok to run Firefox? Am i more at risk from virus' if i use it?

    Think thats all for now. Thanks for your help

    Apple +C = Copy
    Apple +V = Paste

    Microsoft rarely updates the program. Take a look into aMSN or Adium X

    No viruses for OS X as of now so you are perfectly fine to run FireFox
