About Grethor


Grethor allows you to change and manage your MSN Messenger 7.x personal message and picture. (see the image below for an explanation of what those items are).


How To Use Grethor

When you run Grethor for the first time, you'll have to go into the Settings screen and specify a few values.
  • Run At Login: If you check this on, the program will automatically run each time you login to your machine. If left unchecked, you'll need to run the program yourself when you want to start using it.
  • Change personal message once: This mode only changes your personal message and picture once when the program is first run. It will then re-apply the name every 15 minutes in case MSN Messenger forgets it (which happens sometimes).
  • Change personal message every: In this second mode, it changes your personal message and picture every X number of minutes.
In order for Grethor to change your personal message, you will need to turn on the "What I'm Listening To" mode.
