    I have this aggravating and strange problem with good old windows messenger.

    As administrator it works just fine. If I create a new limited account then messenger doesn't work. When I click on the icon it seems to start because I can see the hourglass flashing a couple times, but after a second or two it bails out, eg. just exits like that. Looking in the Windows Task Manager I can see that it is not running anymore (in the background).

    Is there someone out there who can help me?

    Rumor has it that this forum is filled with Windows XP experts, so who can help me with this one. Please...

    Yes, I tried that also. But it doesn't help either. Is there anyone else out there who can help me?
