    hi!

    Nice work!

    I have a question

    I clicked on the link and I got an unknown certificate warning...

    Any ideas?

    Is it safe?

    Microsoft doesn't sign there own certificates?

    What browser are you using.No certificates with IE.

    As it says in the warning "your browser does not recognize the certificate authority"

    BTW,yes it is safe.

    i'm using firefox.

    It prevents drive by downloads

    I canceled it yesterday but tried it again just now and I never got the alrert or drive by download and it worked fine.

    weird. Not sure why Microsoft needed to install anything on my computer since it is login in to msn (like hotmail) to do the changes

    Just bumping this with some more info.

    The service is now called "Windows Live Alerts".

    The url has slightly changed to reflect this, however the original MSN URL (in first post) still works.

    New URL here:
