    Messenger live drops my internet connection. Goes on and off constantly. All
    when I try to use it. Since installing windows 7.

    Still having the same issue with windows messenger. After I installed
    windows 7. Tried to uninstall and reinstall. Still the same issue. Not sure
    what else I can do from here.

    I have looked at the modem I used. All that I saw. Said that it should be
    fine to use with the OS.

    Any help would be great. If you know how I can sign on without getting
    disconnected within secs.

  2. Greetings,

    There is a small possibility that the Windows 7 networking autotuning feature is causing
    this. You can do turn it off by opening up an elevated command prompt and
    typing the following:
    netsh interface tcp set global autotuninglevel=disabled

    If you're unsure what I mean by an "elevated command prompt", this explains it:
