well it is the IM-Shield, it will scan all instant messenger transfers by default setting.
you don't need to configure anything in MSN.
if you didn't install the IM-Shield with avast! you should go to Add/Remove programs and hit avast! installation and choose change, and then add the IM-Shield. After it's installed, you may have to reboot windows. after that you are protected.
