    You have MSN in the programs list, is it MSN Messenger, or something else?

    MSN Messenger should have trusted and internet Access permission only, with Trusted and Internet Server permission denied. That will give you basic instant messaging functions. If you want to use voice or video messaging, you might need to grant Internet Server permission, but I would suggest doing that on a temporary basis while you use that feature - leave the setting on ASK (?) for internet server.

    Now, if MSN in their ISP guise have a program running on your system in order to connect, I'm afraid I don't know what their permissions should be.

    Now to favourites. If these are Internet Explorer favourites, they are stored on your hard-drive only and will probably have been removed by running a system recovery (was that a CD provided by your PC manufacturer? they usually wipe everything.) However, MSN stores your MSN Messenger "buddies" on their server, so once you log into MSN you should still see those.

    As for advice on program permissions, use the search box at the bottom of this page to search for posts by Hoov or MuffinCharizard. You will find links to their web sites in their signatures or profiles. They contain a wealth of information about the subject

    Thank you so much for your reply and the information you provided me with. I will most certainly do the search to get that info.

    Many blessings to you
