    I have this, I think for me every time I have a chat windows open with a blank advert at the bottom, and it makes my fan start and slows my windows down. so I sign out of messenger close the process and resign in and it works fine because the advert is back.

    I have the same problem on my PC! :@
    I've actually resorted to using Pidgin instead to access my Live account as Messenger 2011 was crawling! It got to the point where I couldn't even type in the box it was THAT slow!!
    Initially I thought it was my PC as I've recently gone 64-bit but reading this makes me realise that it's not my PC and everything else works fine on it just now so "boo!" to Microsoft!!

    Yep, I think its simply the ads that cause the cpu usage.

    I removed them right away and cpu isn't a problem.

    I love the new tabbed conversation window and facebook integration.

    Its a nice upgrade if you spend a little time customizing it

    The easiest way to remove ads the flash ads from any version of MSN messenger is to simply add rad.msn.com to the restricted sites list in your internet options. This will cause the adverts to fail to load and simply display a white box instead.
