While using any browser(IE,or Firefox) and using Windows Live Messenger(Msn Messenger v8 BETA) the links are un responsive and the browser will not open a new window, only starting the process(No GUI) I am using a Windows Xp Home SP2, P4 2.8 Ghz HT processor, 512MB PC3200 mem (no errors, 2 -256 mb sticks) seem like no hardware problem, ive scanned my computer with ESET NOD32, Mcafee VirusScan 10, SPybot S&D, TMAS 3, TM Housecall 6.5(online java scanner), there seems to be no Malware of anykind what setting could have changed to cause this problem?

You could do that or just deal with it until they release a new version. The new IE 7 works directly with the "Windows Live" software so if you have upgraded to the BETA messneger, hotmail, live, etc, add feedback to M$ and I am sure they will get around to it...someday. Its the pains of having the "new" thing.

I Had HOTMAIL for over 14 plus years, and now I want the OLD Windows Hotmail, MSN,etc..

The new one is so hard to read, to light, to small, and have a terrible time reading it.

How can I get back to the old Hotmail,MSN??


excuse me but I HATE the NEW Hotmail, Windows system (or whatever you call it)
