Hi Folks,

Anyone having problems with signing into MSN? Both I & my friend in Canada can't sign into MSN so I was wondering if anyone else is having the same problem.

Please HELP!

Yes I have just had the same problem, something to do with the host file. I tried the Repair option but it failed so i went into my firewall and deleted the permissions from there and shut messenger down then re-activated it and all is now OK. I hope this will help you out.

I've just been upgraded to 2008 version and I can't sign in.

I don't think that it is just Messenger as Hotmail and Spaces have both been troublesome tonight. My guess is that it is a Microsoft Server problem. Keep trying it seems to be getting better.

audeal,

Please explain how to do this - went into my firewall and deleted the permissions from there and shut messenger down then re-activated it and all is now OK. I hope this will help you out.

I uninstalled Messenger, downloaded version 8.5. Now working OK.
