    Hey everyone. I just upgraded to Service Pack 2 after receiving the CD from Microsoft in the mail and it was a successful upgrade! :D No problems experienced yet. I did experience one issue but I wouldn't call it a problem. It is with Windows Messenger. I right click on Windows Messenger in the System Tray and click My E-mail Inbox. Unfortunately, it opens Microsoft Outlook (I have Microsoft Office XP installed) instead of Hotmail which is where I want it to go. Also, there is no link within Windows Messenger to go to Hotmail. It is only accessed by right clicking Windows Messenger in the System Tray from what I can tell. I am thinking that I might need to get an add-on for Windows Messenger like I have to do after formatting the hard drive and reinstalling everything. Do I need to do this? I didn't find anything within Help that addressed this. Any ideas? Thanks in advance!

    Well, I decided to just go ahead and upgrade to MSN Messenger 6.2. I like the extra features. However, I'd still appreciate it if someone sent me a fix for Windows Messenger or let me know that I can't fix it whichever it is. Thanks in advance!

    Go Start>Control Panel>Internet Options and click the Programmes tab then in the e-mail drop-down box, re-associate e-mail with Hotmail.
