MSN Instant Messenger
Read the article that everyone's commenting on.
How do I upgrade the messenger to the latest version?
Just download the new version and install. http://ask-leo.com/d-30916a will take you to the download page.
When I log onto MSN Messenger it checks my email for 'unread mail' and appears to monitor for 'new' email.
How do I stop this? I don't want it to monitor, alert me or do anything associated with my email.
I want it to 'chat', nothing more.
Click on the dropdown menu next to your name and go to Personal Settings at the bottom. Then go to Alerts and Sounds and untick the third option "Display alerts when email is received"
When i turn the pc on it shows the 3 family profiles, and next to the name it shows if you have any unread msn messenger email's.
How do i remove this notification ????
I found the answer, it's a regedit that is required.
When contacts come online it usually notifies u but i turned this off, and now i dont know how to turn it back on!! I hear the sound when someone comes online but i dont see the little popup box. Someone pls help!
Is there a log kept on my computer of all the pop-up alerts when someone comes online? For example, lets say I just came online and the little window pops up saying I am online. Is there a log kept of that somewhere on the recipients computer?
I have the Windows XP installed on my computer after getting it scrubbed due to a bad virus. Now when I am doing anything on my computer in fullscreen mode or not I get this annoying ring when some one gets an email. I have gone into my MSN options and removed the 'alerts' off mine & the kids did the same...but it still coming through. Is there anyway to disable it completely regardless who signs in on my computer???? Please help. Watching movies is annoying when the computer rings and you fall off your seat cause your watching a scary movie...okay...it scares me. Help... B
Hey, i did as you said, but it still doesn't flash to show me who's messaged me. i hear the noise but no flashing button...it really fustrates me because if i have like 6 convos open i have to go thru each person looking to see who messaged me..
