Windows live messenger problem

  gazmix 22:24 16 Jun 2008

I have had this issue for 3 hours, it gives a different ref number each time, but it says 'host file' your host file contains windows live messenger entries that may interfere with name resolution!!
It was ok earlier, is it my prob or at their side!

The trouble shooter points to host file!!

Help needed thanks

I'd try uninstalling it and re-installing.

I'm having same problem...........yet the Microsoft site states that the service is operating normally...

Anyone else with similar problems?

I just had it but I kept on trying to run the repair option untill it eventually succeeded, so keep doing the repair and hope for the best.
