  1. Has anyone been having trouble with MSN recently? I can't sign in at all, and it says my computer is to blame, primarely my firewall, but I've checked the settings ans messneger is allowed to access the net....so what's wrong? :confused:

  3. I have decided to download MSN again, see if that helps, probably wont, but it's worth a shot.

    Same here, started yesterday evening. Microsoft offered to help in exchange for some personal data :meh:
     
  5. I did the trouble shoot thing, but it didn't work very well, it just told me my fire wall was to blame, but all the settings are right. I managed to sing in once, bnut then not again, so now I'm downloading MSN again, but it didnt download right first time round, so now im trying yet again...best work otherwise it's time to call a PC technician.
     
  6. I had problems before; but it's all right now.

    You tend to lose your patience with newer computers.
     
  7. Apparnetly the problems are due to the MSN protocal Servers being down...meh, i downloaded it again and it signed in first time!

    Msn has been being a bit of a bitch for most people from the past 24 hours. Fine for me tho - i have NO idea why.
     
  9. It's messing me about again, it's really getting annoying now. Does anyone know how you sue that web messnger thing?
     
  10. Last night, my messages weren't going through, and I received others' messages all at once and minutes after they were sent. Today I can't get on.
     
  11. Same with me......if anyone has got the address of the web version of MSN please tell us it, as then we can log in using that.

    I've been having troubles off and on for the last day or so...also, I believe they do not let you sign in (sometimes) if you do not download the newest version of messenger.
     
  13. what is the newest version of messenger? the only one i know of it 6.2, which I have....Microsoft can be jerks sometimes.

    The biggest problem with MSN is that it is a Microsoft product. Need I say more?
     
  15. I'm downloading yahoo instant messenger.....do I have to be a registered user of Yahoo! internet, or do I just have to sign up using my hotmail account?

    I wa having troubles yesterday to. I've come to the conclussion that MSN, and hotmail were capable of receivng messages/e-mails, but not from people on it's own server/service/program/whatnot. My friends were able to receive e-mails from my g-mail accounts, but not my MSN one. and at the same time, I could talk to them using Windows Messenger, but not MSN Messenger. I haven't used it today though, so things may have changed.
