    Windows Messenger Live

    --------------------------------------------------------------------------------

    Where do I start??????

    I have a little (well BIG) problem with MSN messenger live.

    For the last 6-7 weeks now messenger live has been messing around. From Mon-Thurs inc and between the hours of 8pm - 10pm it has been disconnecting and reconnecting every 4 minutes. Until last week.
    Where it started disconnecting and reconnecting early and finishing at 11pm.
    Also it happened over the weekend...started at 1.45pm and finishing at 11pm.
    Before you guys say anything, I have tried everything from totally uninstalling it and reinstalling it......going back to an earlier version of messenger....disabling windows messenger...to system restore...to even contacting microsoft themselves!!!! (great help they were...rolls eyes)

    Hell I even spent most of last week backing up everything onto disc...and then i REFORMATTED the blasted pc on sat.
    But........even the reformatting has not solved the problem.

    Its not my server or modem like some people have suggested.

    Oh I also hasten to add that while all this is happening with messenger... I cant access any Java based programmes like chat or yahoo games. So i even uninstalled java (before u lot ask) but nope.....with no java msn is still messing about.

    It is driving me nuts!!!!!!!!!!!!!
    Driving US nuts!!!!

    Does anyone else have any ideas or clues as to why I have this problem with windows messenger live????
    The version I am running is the latest one...8.1.

    ceegee

    ps: during this time i can access any web site...download and upload everything .......even access yahoo messenger and others that I have

    This seems strange for sure. Only suggestion I can make is in your Live Messenger Window under tools/options/ then connections and there is a connection trouble shooter. Maybe playing around in there might give you a clue.Im using version 8.1 also.

    Re: Windows Messenger Live

    Have you tried blocking internet access for it with your firewall ??? If so, what happens ??

    Best answer is to remove it and not reinstall it. It can't "mess around" if it's not there. <img src=/S/noevil.gif border=0 alt=noevil width=25 height=17>

    yup and nothing. even ran it with no firewalls or anti virus protection <img src=/S/sigh.gif border=0 alt=sigh width=15 height=15> that was before i reformatted.

    and it will come to the point that i might ditch it all together.
    has baffled me and my techy friends.
    but is weird tho that i even went back to 7.5 and to just using web messenger and the same thing was happening

    chuckles sure is a good invention.

    anyway I thought I would let you know that I have finally sussed out the problem...and so far for 10 days i have not had a problem at all.

    I got back in contact with microsoft and explained yet again the problems...even after the reformat and they replied (oh and a different tech support person lol)
    this is what they said.

    Very long message moved to attachment by HansV

    anyroad, I went through all the check lists they they suggested. took me all day just to find the folder they were talking bout (wasnt where they said it was)
    cleared and deleted it all, did the checks etc etc and
    i uninstalled live and reinstalled it again just to make double sure.
    and as i have said...it worked...YAY for Jordan.

    I hope this helps anyone else who was experiancing these problems ( i know of at least 6 others who were)

    and ty to all of you who tried to help
