I get a lot of questions from people having problems with MSN Messenger. A lot of questions. MSN-Problems.com turns out to be a very helpful resource with recommendations for each of the various MSN Messenger versions and error codes that people are experiencing. There's also a very active forum with even more advice from folks very knowledgeable and on-top of current Messenger issues.

I'm having difficulty in signing into msn messenger 7.5. Firstly in the box where you type in your email address, the computer freezes for about 1 min and then my email address appears after a long time. Secondly When I sign in the message "Signing to MSN messenger failed because the service is temporarily unavailable. Please try again later." so a tired again but nothing. I could sign into the Web msn messenger perfectly so my microsoft password was fine, and so was my service status which signed in perfectly. When I went into options and cnnection troubleshooter test. I teseted msn messenger and noticed that 'Wireless' was not ticked? My firewall setting allow full acess to msn messenger, and i've changed my password many times to fix the problem and reinstalled msn messenger but no result. My hotmail uses the same account and signs in perfectly. I even went on changing msn messenger acounts and changed everything but still no luck. I dont know what's wrong. Please help!

I recently discovered that my ex boyfriend had been reading my emails and logging on to my msn (It kept showing you have logged on from another computer). I have spoken to him and he has now stopped but I keep getting an error and msn throws me out as soon as I log on and I still get told occasionally that I m logging on at another computer!! Are these errors because my ex had been using my msn or is someone still reading my email and logging on to my msn.

Hello, I was wondering if you could please help me.

My problem seemed to have started when I got MSN Live.
When ever I try to play a game with someone, it tries to connect but cannot and says 'page cannot be displayed' like a normal internet page.
I'm not sure if a virus caused it because I ran two virus scans using different programs and they picked up nothing.
I tried uninstalling Live and reinstalling 7.5 but that didn't change anything.
I've since reinstalled Live and am currently using that.
Please help me.

I have a weird problem. I have msn 8 and have different screen names/ accounts. My Primary account is not showing my buddy window after I select it from my buddy list. However , the buddy does get a spot in my toolbar. When I try to click on it. It speeds from the far right and goes back to the tool bar. I click again and it goes back to the right ..far right . Not to be seen at all. My Buddy instant messages me and I get all the sounds but no window to be looked at. I keep on getting msnmgr-bad image.. I have uninstalled msn. I have uninstalled the Live Plus. And reinstalled all back..only to find I still have the problem. When I sign on to another screen name/account everything works great. With the exception of the PLUS. Now the plus is not loading on to my MSN. I have it on the main window but when I click on it it says it wsnt installed. SO therefore I tried to 5 times to instal it but it doesnt work..SO I am very confused with all this..HELP!!! Yhanks

First, I don't see an "article" "that everyone is commenting on" - only problem statements from various people, without a response, so I'm not sure what the article is. Second, I did a search on my problem on google and nothing came up. My problem is this: I cannot see my inbox using the MSN premium butterfly software.I can see my inbox from hotmail, but from there I can't move emails around to my stored files. I contacted qwest and msn (msn would not help me). Qwest said under their contract they were obligated to help, but could not find the source of the problem. They helped me uninstall and reinstall the software and spend 2 hours on the phone with me trying to figure it out, but could not. Any clues? Thanks for any help.

December 3, 2006 12:21 PM

"The article that everyone is commenting on" is at the top of the page where you entered your comment.

Unfortunately, no clues on your problem. I do hear about it from time to time, and it does appear to be an MSN/Hotmail related problem, but as you can see, support is lacking.

Hi Guys,

Every time I open MSN from a desktop icon, the window appears briefly then closes to the info trya. When I click on the icon there it does the same thing. I cant get the window to stay open long enough, even to sign in. This happens with all the accounts on my laptop. Strangely enough, I can access MSN through Trillian, Any ideas??? Sorry I should have said, I am using Windows Live Messenger.

Carol

Hi, I have serveral accounts on msn.
but my general account seems to have developped a problem. When I log in on this account everything seems to be ok, but there is something wrong. it so happens that everyone who TRIES to send me a message, gets the "Delivery failure notification". this means that no one is able to send me messages!! HOWEVER, when I have opened a conversation with someone, he/she is able to talk to me, this is very weird and above all VERY annoying. it is the first problem on msn I havent been able to solve myself.. I hope anyone can help me ASAP with this problem, Oh yeah btw I use msn 7.5 but I dont think the version has anything to do with it because my other accounts work just fine.. thanks in advance

Hi Leo. The problem I've been having for a few months now, is whenever I'm signed into MSN for about 20 minutes, I still appear to be online, as do my contacts, but it stops delivering my messages and my status won't change - it's as if my computer thinks I'm still signed in but the internet doesn't. Then when I sign out, MSN informs me the messages I've sent have not been delivered. Look forward to your reply =]

'' Most like causes ''

- You are not connected to the internet - I am.
- The website is encountering problems - For this long?
- There might be a typing error in the address - It is a direct link.

Any help would be appreciated. Thank you.

I've got this problem... I can sign in on msn, and I will remain signed in.. but after a while it doesn't 'refresh' anymore, so if someone went offline, I still see the person's status as online. Also, after a couple of minuts my reactions don't arrive anymore, neither do the one's of the other person. So after about 20 minuts I can keep talking, but none of it will arrive.. It is quite frustrating and I really don't see the problem =S can you help me out?

You (or your friend sending the link) probably logged to a site recently and gave your msn password. Now the site uses your password to log in msn and send a link to all your contacts. New meaning to the expression "viral marketing"...

To fix, change your password.

March 25, 2008 7:25 AM

dear leo...

i have following problem since 2006... generally i use the latest version of MSN messenger and Microsoft Windows...(now msn 8.5 and windows vista)

2 years ago people (generally from turkey) starts to add me their msns and it starts to alert me on my every sign-in... i block whoever i dont want to chat but after a few days i noticed that i am blocking and deleting the same people everytime i sign-in... after a month the number of people reached 200... and it is obviously very very annoying to do the same thing on the same names everytime i sign in...

i prefer to change my e mail adress... use it about 1 year... and it is stoled... then again i turn back my old msn (vural@hotmail.com)...

msn is updated the program and now they keep the contact list on internet i think...
so i create a new group on my account and keep the unrequired people as blocked in it... but now it didnt work properly on different computers... and again i need to block that same people when i sign in from different computers... btw the number reaches 700 now... also some computers which lower configuration is crash when i sign-in related this issue...

how we can solve this problem? have u got any idea?

also one year ago suddenly my shearing folders option get dissapeard... so i cant use it too... i read the help files about this thing and it says hard-disks must be ntsc format... which mine it like that... so i cant solve this too...

pls pls help me about this issues...

thanks...

April 15, 2008 6:14 AM

Hey. About half a year ago, I had to reinstall MSN because it was deleted. After I installed it again everything was fine. But now, whenever someone signs in, I get a new email, or sometimes when someone talks to you, a window pops up that says "Error report" it says that windows has encountered a problem, and needs to shut MSN down. It has the options 'send error report' or 'don't send.' If you click don't send, it just signs out of MSN, but if you click send error report, another screen that says 'sending error report' comes up for about 1 second, and then MSN signs out. Please help, it is very annoying having to sign in and out of MSN all the time. It also does it even if you're not talking to anyone.
Thanks.

Hey Leo,
I only just got a new laptop yesterday and I put the new version of msn on it this morning. It was working fine and then I downloaded Lime Wire and Java, then turned my computer off. Then when I came back and turned it on and everytime that i typed my e-mail address in and my password it wouldnt let me remember myself and kept coming up with the error code 80070005. Then I restored my computer again and took Lime Wire and Java off and deleted Msn Messenger and downloaded it again but it is still doing the same thing as before. If you can help me that would be great, Thanks
Katelyn =)

Hi,
I can't find the answer to this questions anywhere. Yesterday when I logged into MSN messenger all of my contact list was deleted except for one person (and her address was blocked). Could this be from a virus and how can I get my list back?

It also lags and stops responding frequently.

Hi Leo,

The last few days msn messenger has been playing up. There are 3 accounts on our computer and when other people log into msn messenger it works fine most the time, but sometimes and ALL THE TIME when i log in, and go to talk to someone or go to view a message i received while offline it comes up with this window:
Windows Live messenger has encountered a problem and needs to close.
and when i go into s something about regarding the condition of windows live messenger when the problem occured: the operating system version and computer hardware in use: your digital product ID which would be used to identify your license and the internet protocol address of your computer. I have no idea what all that means but msn seems t to have run fine for my partner this morning. please HELP!!!! :(
