    Sign in. Status is signed in and on-line (per my other account).

  2. Greetings Titus,

    You could try deleting the file to see if that would aid the problem by shutting down
    Messenger, then clicking Start, then
    Run, type:
    %appdata%\Microsoft\MSN Messenger

    Also, how long are you waiting? If your contacts aren't cached, Messenger may take up to 5
    minutes to sign in and may appear "frozen".

    Hi, was there any resolution to this issue? I am getting what sounds like
    the exact same problem.

    I also see a similar delay when Windows is at the 'shutting down...' or
    'saving your settings' blue screens. I wonder if there is a connection...

    Try - Finds anything or they buy it for you!
