    I seem to be having a bit of a problem with messenger. What I go on the net it connects even if it not in the taskbar. What I try to exit it it tells me that some other application is using it. I know it's not outlook express. It must be internet explorer. Can someone help me fix it? Please?

    I had that problem
    I was running Norton Antivirus 2003 and in its settings it is default to scan MSN ... if you uncheck that option it will let you close it without an error

    Are you running NAV 2003 (or Norton SystemWorks 2003)?

    There's your answer. Renzoukuken said it correctly. The new NAV 2003 includes instant messenger scanning (extended virus protection).

    You may have to check and uncheck the box to stop norton from hanging on to it. I had to do it twice on my machine.
