Hi. I downloaded the MSN Messenger for mac and it's really buggy and slows down my computer, also makes it crash. I have AIM running through I chat, but I'm having problems using an msn messenger account with it. Anyone know how to do this? Thanks.

IChat isnt built for MSN Messenger compatibility. You may want to give Adium a shot.

I agree that you should try Adium, but iChat can work with MSN via Jabber.
