Friends got an awful old PC (128 MB RAM to give you an idea) with XP on which she'd like to use Messenger on.

She's tried Pidgin / Miranda, but she claims they don't support Group Conversations (which she uses a lot).

I have a sneaking suspicion that the latest version of Messenger will be far too much of a RAM hog to work (bearing in mind IE8 is too bloated to run smooth on this PC...), so whats the oldest version that still works?

get 7.0 or 7.5, set compatibility mode to win 2000 then it should work
