Anyone on QQ? I just signed up, and I have the grand total of one friend, which seems to be myself.

My ID is 1307891329 if anyone feels like adding me.

Be very careful with QQ. It's the one secure way to get all kinds of viruses.

I know a few companies which has BANNED the use of QQ because of the terrible security - poorly coded - and all the attendant viruses, spy & malware and Trojans you get with QQ. Just because Chinese like it (because its 'cute') does not mean its any good...and it isn't.

If you have customer / business contacts who use QQ tell them to install Yahoo or MSN and be done with it - IMHO.

Even Alibaba's messenger is a joke and a high security risk.

I banned QQ in the office when I was in Shanghai. All of the office workers had at least 20 viruses or trojans lurking in their hard drives...

Typical Shanghai girls to have some kind of intercourse with everyone they meet and not use any protection.

Oh no! I was hoping for very lot of new friend and make very much the happiness together!

Maybe I'll uninstall QQ if it has poor security.

I have ENGLISH QQ chat and use it from the US with no issue. The only time it tries to install **** is when I go to QQ Zone.

I have 74 QQ friends - 72 of them are female.

Use something like Adium on a Mac. You can have all your friends on QQ, MSN, AIM, iChat, MobileMe, ICQ, etc all in one app. Only problem is it doesn't have webcam support yet.

Is English QQ on a Mac just as insecure?

Should I just use Adium instead?

Actually I had these concerns also. However, international qq ( imqq ) is running on its own platform and as long as its somewhat segregated from QQzone, I don't see much problem. It looks pretty good and they are working with alot of sites and groups here in Shanghai to make the content relevant. We will be working with them.

Don't listen to Andreas. He's crazy. You won't get viruses. You'll only open your computer up to all sorts of invasive scanning and hijacking, and have your "my documents" that's no longer yours the scrutiny of every official within IP distance of your compy 386.

Then you'll get viruses.

It's the natural order of things.

QQ installs government spyware on your computer! This goes way beyond installing trojans/viruses. Here are directions to uninstall on a windows machine. You need to use v_ _ p_ _ n to access this site.

The first uninstallation of QQ scared the **** out of me. I have an in-depth uninstaller which shows you all the files and registry entries that are related to a program. QQ is a **** MESS of files and have literally HUNDREDS of registry entries, never ever a good sign for something as small as an instant messaging program.

Don't. Install. Ever.
