    I have never had this problem before and I am having it
    with another IM that I use.. If I get it fixed for one I am
    hoping it fixes the other. I will log into msn messenger
    and then a few minutes later it will log me out even if I
    am talking to someone, then it tries logging me back in,
    then it logs back out again, etc. and so on. It would be
    great if this could be fixed ASAP because this is getting
    to be a big pain not just for me but other people on my msn
    list. :(

    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 this
    behavior. 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.

    1) If you're using a third-party firewall (Sygate,
    ZoneAlarm, Norton, etc.)
    set Messenger to "Permit All" or "Allow" type options in
    the firewall configuration.

    2) If you're using a router, make sure you have the latest
    firmware from
    your router manufacturer. As well, you might try setting
    your computers local IP into
    the routers DMZ setting (see documentation on how to do
