    Need some help with Yahoo and Windows Messenger

    Windows Messenger:
    I have got the xp service pack one, with the updated windows messenger (4.7). With the latest and previous version, Windows messenger keep logging off or losing connection.

    Yahoo Messenger:
    Ever since I upgrade to XP, when using voice over a dialup, i keep losing voice and have to wait until voice reconnects

    I use aol as my isp, but have also tried BT and Lineone, but still have the same problems

    Any advice?

    Many thanks for your help

    Yahoo Messenger:
    Ever since I upgrade to XP, when using voice over a dialup, i keep losing voice and have to wait until voice reconnects I have the same problem, but it might not be you, Yahoo has been having alot of problems lately with this same subject. I updated to the latest messenger and downloaded the new security Patch at>>>http://www.extremetech.com/article/0,,s=1024&a=27728,00.asp Also make sure you do the Audio Wizard Tests! So far i am back to normal now, they still have periodic problems though. Hope this helps you

    Just scroll down to (where it says) "Further Reading" and click on "New Patched Version of Yahoo Messenger" and thats it. If i remember it downloads kinda fast ( of course i use Fresh Download for my downloads and that is fast Free service
