We Bought this new computer preloaded with vista. It is manufactured by acer.
Well as usuall when you get a new computer you need to install and download all the things you want. One of them is MSN Messenger. I downloaded it then I instlled it. I tried to run it, now thats the problem. As soon as I run Messenger I get the message, "Messenger Has stopped working". It sends informatoion to Microsoft then I get a message telling me to download an update for Acer e-management. I ignored this message and downloaded Messenger 8.0 instead of 8.1.
A few months later I recieved a message when i tried to sign in that to continue I had to download the newer version of messenger. I downloaded, instaled. I found out that it was 8.1. Same problem when running it as before.
I went back to the acer update I was meant to download before. I thought "oh stuff it I can't be bothered to download it". I went over to yahoo messenger. The only problem with that is I can not use video calls or just plain voice calls with my MSN friends. Now I need a solution.
Either I find a way to use my microphone and webcam with messenger users or find a way to fix the messenger problems. The messenger problem has something to do with DEP (Data Execution Protection). I went into Advanced System settings and tried to disable it for Messenger but it said it mut be turned on for this program.
