    Its pretty simple really from personal knowledge with looking at screenshots of the silly paid MSN Explorer that does basicly look like the old Explorer just with a price tag. Basiclly its proberbly because of the fact that either MSN Explorer 8.5 is attempting to run its built in MSN Messenger whilst your other MSN Messenger is already running therefore creating a glitch possibly. If this is not the case and you have already tried just running MSN Explorer 8.5 without MSN 6 running also, then it could be a fault with MSN Explorer therefore just re-download or re-install it or check for any updates?

    Question: Whens MSN Explorer 9 Released? :confused:

    re-download MSN 6.0 or try out MSN 6.1 Beta. No real errors found with it. Seems like a good update from 6.0 with some extra stuff. Worth ago i supose. You may as well try out the MSN Messenger side to see if thats the problem plus it wouldnt affect your subscription with MSN 8.5

    I supose you could always go into the settings on MSN Explorer 8.5 and see whether it can give you an option to disable the in-built MSN Messenger so it doesnt attempt to start up when the MSN Explorer opens.

    Give those ago

    Well i dont really know the offical date but i hear its out soon. But i know that this beta has no real problems to it. Its a good version and as commented, it will be released soon. I guess you could always try the beta release rather than having a few more days of having the annoying moments of a frozen computer. Im in the same shoes as you when it comes to freezing except i just get blue screens of death instead of freeze screens. If i were you, i would try out the Beta MSN 6.1 so i know that it might be able to help the problem rather than wait for how ever long it will take for the release for the same answer. Why wait when you can get the answer sooner? :D

    Alex :cool:
