I recently installed MSN 7.0 onto some pc's at work in order to instant message each other.
Our IT guy came and took it off a few pc's and said that it made the pc's run badly and left them open to virus?

Is he full of shat, or could he know somethin i dont?

All the pcs are running xp and are fairly decent workstations.

It can let viruses in. In most cases you would have to transfer the file from another machine to yours. What scares them is it bypasses most of their protection systems. Also there are some viruses that target IM that can download themselves without your knowledge.
