Read the article that everyone's commenting on.
I am having a great deal of difficulty with Windows Messenger 4.7 on my Windows XP Home.
It is creating a conflict when I am attempting
to sign on my Juno Account. I would like there
fore to disable it completely, Can You Help me
or point me to a FAQ on how to do it. I would
also like to disable MSN MESSENGER also for the
same reason, conflicts it's creating when I am
signing on to my ISP.

Jen: hard to say without the exact error message(s). Make sure you're logged in with Administrative privileges.
Carl: MSN Messenger is removed by visiting control panel, add/remove programs. Here's more on removing Windows Messenger: http://ask-leo.com/archives/000132.html

I'm not really sure exactly what you;re asking, so this is just a guess: try these articles: http://ask-leo.com/how_do_i_get_messanger_to_stop_logging_in_automatically.html http://ask-leo.com/how_can_i_keep_windows_instant_messenger_from_signing_on_automatically.html
...same as everyone MSN messenger 6.2 simply does't work!!! every time I try logging in it displays a message "sorry, we could not sign you because the sign in name you entered does not exit or password is incorrect. If you have forgotten your password...reset it....error code 0x81000303" I already have a working hotmail account for long. I have already tried changing password...same message keeps coming. even disabling my firewall doesn't help, I have tried reinstalling it many time...but it simply doesn't work. The earlier version used to just run fine...I am regretting my decission to upgrade to the newer version!! any clues...why its behaving like this..
MY MESSENGER FIX:
I have had the same problem with messenger. Havent been able to use messenger for the past 2 months. Today I FINALLY solved it. I use ZoneAlarm and I had a feeling it was ZoneAlarm causing the problem. What I did was..tried to open MSN Messenger (as usual, got the error message) Opened up Zone Alarm "Alerts & Logs"--"log viewer". There was an alert at the time I had tried to open Messenger.
If you have ZoneAlarm this is what you do:
1. Try to open Msn Messenger (just to record alert on ZA)
2. Open Zone Alarm---> "Alerts & Logs"---> "log viewer".
3. On the "Log Viewer" page, click on (to highlight) the alert you just got when you tried to open messenger. Bottom right of the page, click on "add to zone"...you will have 2 choices "trusted" or "blocked".....choose "trusted"
After I did this, Opened messenger with NO problem!! Hope this helps
I had the problem of MSN signing in and out by itself. There was also another problem that OFFICE 2003 (OUTLOOK 2003) would not download emails properly or would download email it had already downloaded and get stuck at a certain point.
ENVIRONMENT : WINDOWS XP HOME
CONNECTION : DSL (British Telecom)
Linksys G3 Wireless router
INTEL PRO Wireless LAN 2100 3A Mini PCI
PROBLEM DESCRIPTION : Email does not download properly and/or stops downloading at various points but never downloads completely.
ANALYSIS : SMTP log analysis indicated that the connection between the server and the client dropped off regularly and was not stable
MSN traffic analysis showed the same thing.
SOLUTION : The problem was deemed to be the actual wireless connection. Windows XP can control your wireless connection through zero configuration. This causes the ip to change in response to changes on the network. It also is apparently quite unstable. Unchecking the Use Windows to configure my wireless connection settings checkbox, and forcing the LAN card to manage the connection solved both problems.
