Microsoft has a download we're offering you to improve your Chat experience. The Microsoft Corporation IE Flash Control, which is only 120 kilobytes in size, is an Active X control that makes the chat item on your taskbar flash when an agent sends a chat message to you. The advantage to doing this is that you can minimize your chat IE window and you will be able to see the flashing when the agent responds to you. You do not need to install this in order to chat with agent. If you do not install it, the only effect to you will be that you will not see the item flashing on your taskbar when the agent sends you chat messages. You will be given the option to install this feature every time you access the chat service unless you have already installed it.
