Heres the deal, at work they have some kinda network set up on windows messenger, you can only add others from that network. Well I want to sign in with my hotmail account so I can talk to my friends from my pc at work. There is no option to sign in with a passport. If I try to install msn it tells me I have to uninstall messenger first and it won't let me do that. What can I do? Can I some how bypass the admin crap and uninstall messenger? Anyone have any ideas or 3 party programs I can use? I tried Trillian but the program needs to have a proxy option that you can configure so it will work through the proxy I run through.
