    You'll be fine as long as you don't blindly click while installing, it
    asks if you want to install the spyware/hijack program. You can remove
    the adware easily if you accidentally install it by uninstalling and
    reinstalling, not selecting it this time. Been there done that.

    Did you read the page?? =)

    And, last but not least, FREE!
    Messenger Plus! is a freeware. You are even encouraged to send it to your
    friends! Of course, it does not contain any type of spyware or trojan.

    For those who want to support the development but prefer not to install the
    sponsor program(READ: ITS OPTIONAL YOU ARE PROMPTED IF YOU WANT TO INSTALL
    IT OR NOT) , you are encouraged to visit the online Messenger Plus! store,
    or give the developer a minute of your time by sending a postcard.
