    Then you may have two instances of "messenger running". I think!

    k lol last post, i just figured it out. i searched ccAp or whatever and that file belongs to symantec (norton2003) and i remember that norton said msn and norton weren't compatible or something.....i think.......

    MS Messenger is just another thread running on your machine. It has the intelligence to spot another instance of itself running but only after the first error so you should not need to uninstall anything it should auto-correct. Be patient.

    This is not a .NET problem whilst I agree that there are some, well a lot, but this particular issue is probably related to a third party programme trying to access info using the MS interface without checking the existing environment. Ok so .NET has the same issues but they are being resolved.

    Its defiantly not related to teh NET frameowrk as I don't have it installed - could relate to a symantec product as I hae several of those installed... It wouldn't bother me, but I use trillian now.

    MSN Messenger/Norton Issue

    What is happening is your Norton 2003 AV integrated itself in to the messenger service, so it scans incoming messenger files. This is new to NAV 2003 this year. If you would like more info, check out this page and type in this document number. Hope this clears it up.
