    how do I setup an alert notice on first post on MSN Messenger My grandma is 84 years old and we tried having each post ring a bell(wav) and that drove her nuts .. How can I send an single alert (wav file) to alert her to come to the computer (for the first post only) In other words "ring ring" and then after she answers the message no more "ring ring".

2.Remote Assistance says Messnger is not installed - but it is


Help & Support on the Compaq Presario is a different 
layout from "normal" XP but it seems to work except that 
it insists that Messenger is not installed when I try to 
send an invitation for remote assistance.  Messenger is 
installed (now latest 6.1) and works just fine.

has anyone encountered this - and got a solution ?
