You'll have to try it and see. You have MSN's answer but now you get to try it on your own.
I live in Hong Kong. I used MSN Explorer (for free) on my old laptop. It broke and I just bought a new one with Windows 7. I want to install MSN Explorer, but MSN Customer Support said it is now available only if I have MSN Premium subscription.
There is a free MSN Explorer 8 availalbe on the web for download (e.g. http://downloads.phpnuke.org/en/download-item-view-a-x-a-x-z/MSN%2BEXPLORER.htm), but its description says "Operating Systems
Windows Xp,Windows Vista".
Will Explorer 8 be safe to use with Windows 7?
