    I've been wondering if this would actually work.

    You need something like a Sandisk MicroCruiser, its a usb flashdrive designed to be able to install programs to it. You install Firefox for instance. It has all your bookmarks setting yadda yadda. It's not actually ON the computer, and as such, any browser setting ON the computer you would think wouldn't have any impact on the flash drive.

    The idea is you put it in the USB drive, and just surf where you want.

    It also supports Trillian and Skype, also IM programs among other things.

    As I have no where to go to experiment, I've never been able to test out the notion.

    @ Panzer.

    Some of the portable aps do work. But that is only if I can config the proxy settings.

    Wont work because of the proxy settings.

    Are the systems WinXP?

    You can hide the default Messenger, but unless you delete the exe specifically you can still launch it via the run dialog.

    Start->Run (or Winkey + R) and type in "msmsgs.exe" without the quotes. It'll launch the basic Messenger that comes with WinXP.

    Try the web messenger. It's basically a browser version of the MSN messenger.

    Sorry, but you can always use proxy.

    I mis-understood your question. When you said online messenger, I thought you were talking about the windows XP default one.

    I remember back in highschool all I did was ping a site and put the IP into the browser. [​IMG]

    I don't suspect many more setups are that poor though.

    If you own a DS and Flashcart and you take it to school, use Beup!

    I don't really see the point of MSN Messenger in school, all your friends would be sitting right next to you xD
