up till a couple ofweeks ago i have been using instant messenger with no problems, all of a sudden it doesnt work, i dont know whether i upgraded or what but it now wont let me in.
i have changed my details in .net passport but still no good. can anyone advise please
yes akash, there is a message that says that cant connect due to .net service due to a problem with the service or your internet connection.
after a week i think the service is ok and my internet connection is ok.
i can get into my hotmail, but not i.m. .
i am thinking of uninstall windows xp formatting my hard drive and a re-install, this is drastic, but i need i.m. due to reatives in oz, holland and africa.
hope you can help.
Lonman is right, but as far as I know, Messenger warns you there's an update and if you want to install it (Messenger session must be opened). So, the problem is elsewhere; if not already done, I would go for a complete reinstallation of Messenger, last version being 4.6 for XP.
Hope this helps you !
I'm not sure if this is going to work though. I followed this guide to make messenger show itself in the add/remove section. I've updated messenger since then and now it's disappeared from add/remove again. Maybe Big Bro Bill hacked the hackers right back. If it doesn't show up for uninstall, then i can only suggest finding a third party, full version, to reinstall. I hope this information helps.
Ep, glad to see you come back and tidy up...did want to ask a one day favor, I want to enhance my resume , was hoping you could make me administrator for a day, if so, take me right off since I won't be here to do anything, and don't know the slightest about the board, but it would be nice putting "served administrator osnn", if can do, THANKS
