Ok I am fed up with messenger already!!! I have done all the research and looked for solutions for my problem..... I CAN SEND whatever I file I want to others via messenger and also do remote assistance, but I CANNOT RECEIVE ANY FILES OR REMOTE ASSISTANCE. I have disabled the firewall so I dont think thats it. I dont know where the port settings are that I need to change to resolve this. Also are there any policy or registry settings I may have screwed up?? I am the administrator on my personal PC. It is driving me crazy. HELP.....please?
