Messenger causes display resolution issue?

Hi all,

Just wondered if anyone had come across this before.

MSN Messenger causes the displey resolution to change to 640X480 on start-up. Exiting Messenger causes the display to revert to the correct (desired) setting. Bizzarre!

The PC is running XP Home (SP2)and the graphics card is an nvidia Geforce 6200.

All was running well with the PC, but I suspect that an upgrade to Windows Live Messenger 8.0 was the route of the issue.

Now even unistalling version 8 and reverting to 7.5 doesn't cure the issue.

Any ideas?

PS. Have already tried re-installing original display drivers & the latest version from nvidia.

Have also tried various malware scans to eliminate malicious software - all were negative.
