    MSN 8.1 can be quite annoying with that pop-up ad everytime you accidentally roll over it. I could definitely do without it, it's probably why MSN is taking up so much resources all the time, around 30Mb if you leave it on for a while.

    rumoured the company did it for the advertisers of the ads, probably the advertisers asked for it, so everybody get to see their ads. FOR SURE.
