A script to search for protocol fragments of MSN Messenger (or MSN Live Messenger) chat. The message containing the chat is extracted and placed (where possible) into relevant bookmark folders. These protocol messages are NOT fragments of chat logs they are the remains of the actual MSN protocol messages as they appear the Internet. In many cases these exist on a machine even where chat logging has been disabled. The script was developed in conjuction with the publication of this paper: http://computerforensics.parsonage.co.uk/downloads/MSNandLiveMessengerArtefactsOfConversations.pdf
