MSN Messenger 5 HELP Needed

  WiLL-A 00:24 25 Jan 2003

Downloaded and installed MSN Messenger 5. I have Windows ME installed and Messenger refuses to log in or connect to the service.

I have been trying 4 days but with no luck. I checked the status of the service but it says everything is fine.

Is any one else having this problem and if so did they find away round it?

Did you have a previous version installed and did you disable it when downloading and installing.
If you had a previous version System Restore back to a good time sounds favourite

V5 is for XP not ME thats prob why my suggestion would be remove it and revert back to version 4.6 or 4.7

Sorry Lozzy, whatever the problem it is not the OS. I am running V5 on ME

I'm running Ver 5 with WinME and the only problem I have is occasionally when I run Outlook Express while already having Messenger running, Messenger can crash when I close OE. Apart from that, I don't have any probs with it at all.
