Anybody been noticing MSN behaving strange?

I have noticed i nthe past week or so some weirdness in the way MSN is running, tonite it really drew my attention. I was using VZi(sat dormant in one window) I had Google maps running and google was like uber slow, i had never seen it this slow, i bring up task manager and msn is using 500mb of memory! i had 3 chat windows open. the system was totally slow, so i sign out, quite the program reload it and now its much better, starting out at about 45-50mb, but it keeps pulsing slowly upto about 90mb, im only leaving it there running and occasionally typing a few words in 2 chat windows i have.

is there some sort of bug going about?

the othere day i also had it where i was chatting in one window then suddenly the window behind was selected like i`d clicked the mouse, so i move the mouse and its trying to resize the window. I havent got any detected viruses but i wonder are there some msn bugs goign about?

Now you mention it, I've just looked at mine, and it's using 80 megs doing absolutely nothing apart from being logged on. Shonky coding or something else?

:confused:

Edit: I minimised to the system tray and it went down to 7! Over 70MB for just the main window? Two tabs in Firefox only use 65.......

MSN 'Live' uses alot more resources than the 'old' MSN.

Its also full of bugs still, give it a year it will work properly, hence I use MSN 7.5 ;)
