  2. Hi,

    If it "just started" yesterday, I'd suggest you first try System Restore as it's a lot easier
    and a quicker fix than anything else I can personally offer.

    If you're using Windows XP, you can find System Restore by going to Start, then Help &
    Support, and then 'Undo changes to my computer using System Restore'. Under Vista you can
    get to System Restore by clicking the Start button, typing in System Restore and clicking the
    option when it appears. In either case, simply choose a restore point on a recent day/time
    when you knew Messenger was working.

    Same thing just happend to me... and i uninstalled WLM (widows liv
    messenger) and downloaded it again but the same thing happend. i eve
    restarted and did the same thing all over..
    at the end i found it was because i downloaded some bandoo (smile
    app), after i deleted it everything was fine

    try and remember if there was anything you downloaded just before i
    stopped working, maybe that is the problem...hope it helps anyone who i
    in the same position.:

  4. Hi,

    Very true. Also, the kiwee toolbar has also been found to be problematic too.
