  • Thanks for your question Joy!

    An MSDN Subscription is a program targeted at Software Developers, and it gives them immediate access to new Microsoft software for the express purpose of enabling those software developers to create new software using the Microsoft software for a certain amount of time (typically a year, or 3, depending on what type).  

    Read section 2 on this help page for what seems like a good brief overview of what an MSDN Subscription is:

    So to  answer your question, it doesn't do anything to your computer, what it does is let you more easily create programs that run on top of Microsoft Windows.  If you're not a Software Developer or a Software tester, its may not the right thing for you.

    Please let me know if you have any followup questions.
