Just commenting. MSN has its own army of support staff like AOL. MSN is not a Windows 95/98 supplied item and there is very little about it at http://support.microsoft.com As it's "their" bag, give their support a call.

Talk about no support.

It's not covered in the Microsoft knowledge base either in any helpful way.

Maybe you can do without it?

Sounds as if something is blocking the load during Startup.

For your reading pleasure only:

When MSN Explorer is installed on a system, the Loadqm.exe file (the MSN Queue Manager (MSNQ) component which manages queuing for the background file-transfer mechanism that is known as the drizzling service) is added to the Startup folder and starts each time the system boots, [Q309418].

Note: When messages are sent to a remote computer and the network connection is lost, the application may have a 12-second to 17-second delay in response to the Message Queuing send function and occurs every five seconds because the Message Queuing Manager tries to reconnect to target computers that do not have a working TCP/IP session. If the target computer is not available, this connection attempt can be blocked. Message Queuing uses a limited number of working threads to handle these network connections and local applications. Since there is no limit to the number of working threads to retry these connection attempts, this can lead to all worker threads being tied up in connection attempts. Since there may be more than one worker thread attempting to connect to the same target computer, this can leave no worker threads available for local applications until one of the threads that is used for a connection attempt times out, [Q321784]. To resolve this problem, obtain and install the latest service pack for WinXP.

Since psychofox is using W98SE ... is this advisable?

1. I haven't heard of a spy or malware that messes with toolbars but it doesn't hurt to cleanup your PC.
2. use search for a link to download MSN toolbar. You'll get an EXE for installing it.
3. I'd be lost without Norton Utilities (2002). It fixes many, but not all, unseen problems.
4. Do you have all critical updates for your version (?) of I.E.?
