this could be your speakers too close to the mike. Try running the tools - audio and video settup in msn messenger

done all that already, tring a seperate mic rather than the internal cam mic - good space between spkrs & mic

seperate mic my end and recipients - nope
move trnsmitters bluetooth, ir, the mobile - nope
only seems to be in msn --- still there quite intermittant.....help pls

feedback usually occurs when the microphone is set to a high volume try reducing the level and moving the mike away from the speakers.Could just be your settings click here

failing that try with a head set

nope - still getting long loud static birsts only in msn

You could try reinstalling msn ,however i dont think this will solve your problem there are many appliances in the home including strip lights that can cause static. speaker wires are not sheilded therefore they will pickup static.
Intermttent faults can be more difficult to find could be anything from domrstic central heating pump to faulty wires in the mike.I afraid its a process of elimination.

nothing has moved, its been fine for months , i have had skype installed but since removed it as it hijacked my sound card so i took it off - could it be something to do with msn 7.5, all was well on the previous version
