    Why in the hell do i get error messages, wanting me to
    trouble shoot logging in. I try to trouble shoot and
    nothing. Whenever i log into my MSN 9 internet software I
    get pop up windows everytime saying I logged into another
    location. Someone help me with getting these pop ups and
    error messages from coming back.

  2. Greetings Todd,

    If you're seeing the "logged into another location" popup, what may be happening is that
    Windows Messenger is logging in via the background. To correct this, you can simply disable
    Windows Messenger. To do so, open it up (click Start, then Run, type "msmsgs" and click OK),
    click Tools, Options, Preferences tab and uncheck 'Run this Program when Windows starts' or
    'Run Windows Messenger when Windows starts' (depending on version) as well as 'Allow this
    program to run in the background' or 'Allow Windows Messenger to run in the background'
    (depending on version). This won't remove Windows Messenger, so features like Remote
    Assistance, Whiteboard and Application Sharing will continue to work, but it will let it stay
    out of your way.

    Also, do you have Norton Antivirus installed? Recent versions of Norton Antivirus added a
    new "instant messaging scanning" feature, which can conflict with Messenger and cause it to
    also keep starting. To stop it, open Norton Antivirus (Right-click on the Norton Antivirus
    icon in the System Tray/Notification Area (by the clock), choose 'Open Norton Antivirus'),
    click Options, then Instant Messenger then uncheck MSN Instant Messenger and click OK.

    As for issues MSN 9, I suggest you call MSN here:
    (800) 386-5550

    I've got all of those uncheck like you stated. I have
    been running MSN 9 with Windows Messenger just like you
    mentioned. But I have MSN Messenger 6.2 installed and I
    have it to "Automatically sign in when i connect to the
    Internet". So how and why am i getting these Error
    messages to troubleshoot and I am signed out of one
    location because i singed into another location.
