msn messenger not loading or takes forever to load

frustrating issues with windows live messenger on startup. I have the latest
version of the program, WLM 8.5 . The problem arises right after my laptop
boots up. WLM does indeed appear under the processes tab in my task manager,
but nothing appears in my system tray. Everytime i try to end this process,
nothing happens and the process continues to run. I have tried reinstalling
this various times, but nothing changes. Also, when i try to shut down my
laptop, the live messenger running in the background prevents it from doing
so. If i disable the live messenger from my startup and shut it down,
everything works normally

Greetings frustrated,

What you're describing can be typically a router deadlocking Messenger.

Assuming this is the case and you are using a router, reset the router (aka unplug and plug
back in) and if that doesn't resolve it, try seeing if there's a firmware update for the
router at the router manufacturers website.

open it or run it something would prevent it from running/opening and wanted
me to download something to fix it and if that didnt work I could try
downloading something else.Anyone else have this prob?
