    When ever I try to play a game with Messenger 6.2, the
    game try's to connect, then comes up with "Solataire
    Showdown unavailable, please try again later". But the
    person I connect to has no trouble starting the game on
    their end?

  2. Greetings Marn,

    A few things to check. Firstly, click the Tools menu, then Options, then Privacy tab and
    make sure that "Always ask for my password when checking Hotmail or opening other .NET
    Passport-enabled Web pages" isn't selected.

    Secondly, simply completely shutdown (right-click the Messenger icon in the notification area
    and choose Exit), then restart Messenger and then try to start the game.
