    Windows Live Messenger has worked well for my wife for some time. However, her parents got a newer PC. It's still running Windows XP SP3. Both have the latest version of Messenger. They can connect and have audio chat. But, after about 10 minutes the audio going one way quits. It's always the same audio connection dropping. The actual connection is still up. They can send text, but the audio going one way is gone. If they exit and sign in, the problem goes away for another 10 minutes.
    The problem does not exist with Teamviewer chat, nor with Yahoo Messenger.
    MS instructed to disable QoS and Ipsec.That's been done, but it didn't help.
    Has anyone had and solved this problem?

    Thanks

    Are the audio drivers up to date? Another process could be causing a problem, perhaps the screen saver is kicking in after 10 min?

    Thanks for your ideas, Nathan. The drivers are all up to date and there is no screen saver on either of the PC's. They have started using Yahoo Messenger and have no problems with it.
