I am using Windows Messenger 4.7 client for exchange 2000 server.
The status sometimes doesn't change from online to away when the computer is
inactive and sometimes doesn't change from away to online when computer
active.
I have already set the screensaver time and inactive time.
Could you help me please ?

For messenger plus, I have install it but when I install Microsoft spyware,
it detect spyware in messenger plus, so I uninstall the messenger plus. Do
you know about it ?

Regards

I could provide some solutions that may help you but I can't since your post is
directed at Jonathan. Out of courtesy, it is not nice for me to response.

There are two ways to install Messenger Plus!. You can install it WITH the
sponsor (spyware) crap or you install it without the sponsor. If you choose
the default install (without opting out of the spyware install) you are
indeed installing one of the worst known spyware infestations on the
internet. Because of this, Microsoft ANTI Spyware (please note the anti)
flags Messenger Plus! as spyware. If you installed Messenger Plus! with the
opt out, you don't have the spyware on your computer. In this case you can
tell Microsoft ANTI Spyware to "always ignore" this detection. You won't be
bothered with it again!

And please take note. Spyware is something you don't want on your computer.
You DID NOT install Microsoft Spyware. You installed Microsoft ANTI Spyware.
Any ANTI Spyware gets rid of Spyware!

Try to learn the difference please!

Greetings Darlie,

A number of things can stop the idle detection from working properly, unfortunately you'll
have to basically use process of elimination to find out what it is.

Since you have Plus installed (others have already addressed the spyware issue), open the
main Messenger window, clicking the Plus! menu, then Preferences, General Options, then
Miscellaneous and make use of the "Automatically change status after a period of inactivity"
option there instead.
