Microsoft woes

  Dirk Diggler 09:23 05 Feb 2008

My PC seems to have taken a disliking to anything Microsoft.

I can browse the net no problems but the minute I try and log into either Hotmail or Live Messenger I get a pop up saying Live Messenger has encountered a problem and needs to close

Every other website I have tried is fine

Any ideas or has anyone been having similar?

Hi, I don't use Live Messenger, but I think a un-install/re-install might end your woes.

Try,Add Remove.Windows or MSN messenger.Press change.A box pops up .press repair.See if that helps.

In IE clear all Temp Internet Files and Cookies etc.

Also, make sure that your time and date are correct, reset them to the correct date and time, (even if they are already correct) then restart your pc and you should be able to log into hotmail no problem.

Hotmail checks these when it is deciding whether or not it will allow you access to your account and if it has an issue with them it will not let you log into your account until you resolve it at your end.
