Windows LIve Messenger Repeated auto sign off

  Dave21 21:53 27 Mar 2007

I have upgraded from MSN messenger to Windows LIve Messenger. Signing in is fine- but it boots me off every 2 mins and the same happens repeatedly. Oddly this only occurs in the evening, and not in the morning. I run Zonealarm firewall (if that is relevant). Have tried uninstalling and reinstalling Live Messenger to no effect. Anyone had a similar problem?

Try,Control Panel,Administrative Tools,Services. Scroll down to DNS Client make sure it is set to automatic.

I used to use MSN Messenger a lot, but did not like WLM so changed to Skype (as did all my friends). Now use Skype almost daily with video chats to/from Lanzarote/India/Zanzibar and various parts of UK.

I downloaded Firefox 2 Web Browser and it seems to have cured it.
