Seeking internal messaging/screen sharing app

Hello Experts - I am looking for a (preferably free) messaging and screen sharing application for a small company with about 60 users.  Ideally it would be something that integrates with active directory and can be centrally managed.  I also think it is important to be able to log and archive messages for potential legal issues.  Please recommend any software you might be familiar with that I could check out, thanks!

"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

Hi, I don't have all the answers for you but when one considers microsoft's shift from instant messaging MSN to Skype  one idea
Skype does have a Skype Manager

I'm not aware of any messaging programs with the amount of management you want.

We use TeamViewer, but  that is a paid license.  It does everything you all though.

I suggest to take a look at Softros http://messenger.softros.com
It supports chat, files transfer and desktop sharing/remote assitance. Application has a log history and administrative control.  An Internet connection is not required as it's a completely local app.
The problem it has  a free trial only, should be paid for using after 30 days.
