I have Windows Live Messenger, build 8.5.1302.1018 and Windows Vista SP1.
Since about 2 weeks ago everytime i log on the program freezes and makes any other programs running also freeze at the same time. The computer will eventually after about 3 minutes return to normal.
I have tried reinstalling many times and also reinstalled when deleting registry entries and all the relevent folders in the C drive.
The only way i can fix this is by ticking the box in the options box which says 'This is a shared computer so don't save my address book, display picture or personal message on it'. But ticking this means that everytime i log on all my settings ad pictures and messages are gone.
This is starting to get incredibly annoying and any help given will be highly appreciated.
