I got a annoying problem. I have a dialup internet connection and i use the MSN messenger/email thing.
But whenever i disconnect from internet I get pop-up messages from windows messenger every minute approx.,
telling me this:

"Signing in to .NET Messenger Service Failed because the service could not be found. Please make sure that you are connected to the internet. [Retry] [Cancel] "

That sucks ass.


i've installed XP on my computer approx. 15 times before (i reinstall often...), and this annoying thing have only appeared
the last 2 or 3 times i installed XP. had no problem before...


Have anyone got an idea?

:confused: :confused: :confused: :confused: :confused: :confused: :confused: :confused:

That's not really a bug you're experiencing. Is auto-connect/auto-reconnect enabled on messenger? Try signing out before you disconnect your internet connection. Also make sure Messenger doesn't think you have a LAN connection instead of modem.

I have version 4.5 (the one included in XP)


i can't find any auto-connect/auto-reconnect options...


the weird thing is that i could just disconnect the internet connection before... didn't have to sign out or anything...

I don't think it should change anything, but try to update to 4.6+addin, be sure to install Messenger Plus before and disable the ads, then update to 4.6...

check here:

on the desktop, right click on "my network places", then properties, advanced menu, dial-up preferences....

then uncheck your isp. This is the auto dial settings that override all other IE settings. this is a very annoying feature XP has. Had me stumped for 2 days with my isp autodialing.
