    Got an annoying problem with MSN Messenger atm.
    Running Windows XP Pro, Sound Blaster Live! (using standard xp drivers).

    I run MSN Messenger (3.6 version, don't like new ones but its still the same) and the latest version of Winamp. Now when i first load Winamp and people come online msn i get this really weird crunching noise a second after the sound for them comin online is played (check the clip u'll see what i mean). After having Winamp open for a while it goes away (i think, its been there for so long that i have kinda gotten used to it but now i want it gone >:)).

    Tried installing drivers off the soundblaster website for xp but that didn;t work !

    anyone got any ideas? :)

    Firstly, do you have sounds enabled? Secondly, I wouldn't think MSNM v3.6 would run correctly under the XP operating system. You should really consider upgrading. If there are features that you dislike, such as the ads, you should download MSNM Plus. Good luck.

    In MSNM, sound preferences:

    Tools
    Options
    Preferences (tab)
    Under "Alerts" -- "Play sound when...."

    Box checked?
