Gaming + Msn, very common for me.

I don't particularly use windowed games, I prefer the Alt+Tab function but if I remeber correctly, right click on the game program, properties, Look in the location path and type " -w" Without the quotes and it should work.
If I am helping you and I do not respond within 24 hours, please send me a PM. :)

Depends on the games. Most games now have windowed options. And then you can just Alt+Tab to switch. You'd have to check the settings.
Programming today is a race between software engineers striving to build bigger and better idiot-proof programs, and the Universe trying to produce bigger and better idiots. So far, the Universe is winning.
