you haven't downloaded the most recent version? At the moment it is version 7.5
Also, what Windows do you have? If it is an older system maybe it just won't work.
Do any windows updates because sometimes there are messenger updates through that.
Um, can't really think of anything else, except reinstall it. MSN has always worked great for me and I use it daily.
Also remember that they could have had a massive "server down" problem so that could have had it out for a couple of days or something. So dont be so harsh to microsoft
In order to chat with some friends in America who all use MSN, I reluctantly d/loaded it from the MSN website.
However, I've since found that 'signing in' is really a hit-and-miss affair...
My firewall configuration is fine for MSN,the 'Troubleshoot' tab in MSN shows no problems...but sometimes I get in, other times I keep getting timed out. So frustrating!
Over the past couple of days,I've also checked MSN 'Help' only to find that 'MSN Messenger Service is Down'
I've used AOL and Yahoo and connect first time every time..and their services I don't recall ever 'being down'
Am I missing something or does MSN act like this a lot?
Really:Microsoft, for all its prominence,is an absolute disgrace of a company and if at all practical, I'd ditch all MS 'products' in a heartbeat!
Nevertheless, can someone shed some light on this Messenger problem for me?
