Anybody else having problems getting on MSN Messenger today? ...or is it just me.
Ive been signed in since 8.45 and ive had no problems except for not enough people online to talk too!
I'm signed in OK too
..must just be me then and i still can't get on. Also, i can't remember my password!!
Mines been playing up for days, not letting me sign in. Im in now but i had to uninstall and reinstall the software first. had no end of probs since i upgraded to messenger 7.5. Tut!!!!!!!!
If you've downloaded Messenger 7.5 - according to the WEBSITE it will only work with Windows XP and you must have Expolorer 6 Service Pack 1 or later (although this doesn't have to be your default browser). Go in to the 'System Requirements' on the website and see if you fit the bill. If you don't then that might be your problem.
If you have got XP and 7.5 and having problems I'm sorry I can't help. And I must say I have had no problems with 7.5 at all.
What are the new features? Is it worth downloading?
Ive downloaded it and so far ive seen none!
These are stated as the "features" on the website
Whether they are worth downloading or not entirely depends on whether you would use them. Personally I don't use any of these yet. But as I get used to Messenger more and more I might very well start.
