Let me begin by saying I hate AOL. It's not the service in particular I dislike, but the fact that loading its software into your computer also loads a crapload of spyware, pop-up ads and other unwanted nuisances that are difficult to get rid of -- even when uninstalling. I already have broadband access through Verizon. There is no need for me to get AOL or anything similar. However.... With my broadband access, Verizon gives its subscribers FREE unlimited access to MSN. I have the install icon sitting on my desktop right now. You know, it may be cool to try MSN. After all, it should have exclusive content not found anywhere else. Thing is, I haven't dared to execute the install. My fear is that it will take over my browser, install all sorts of spyware and bring my computer to its knees. So.... For anyone using MSN -plus- regular broadband Internet... 1. Does MSN install all sorts of unnecessary crap in your computer? 2. Does MSN take over your browser, or, does it have its own browser with no interference? 3. Is there worthwhile content to be had on the MSN network? Very interested to hear your opinions. Regards!
