More than a few of you have complained that when at work, my MSN Messenger kept siging out and back in again. After having cursed at it again for several times this morning, I decided it could not be my connection, so I started looking around for what it could be.
It’s pretty darn simple, actually: I had MSN Messenger and Live Messenger installed. Somehow these two kept bumping into each other, so you should remove MSN Messenger, and all works flawlessly again. Follow these simple steps, and you will be cured of the problem as well:
- Shut down Messenger.
- Click Start
- Click Run
- enter “%appdata%\microsoft” (without the quotes) and press Enter.
- You’re now in your application data folder.
- Delete the MSN Messenger folder.
- Start up Messenger again.
That fixed it for me, hope it helps you out as well!
