I would sheck your FIrewall, but htere are proxy settings to think about as they are different for Instant messaging programs.

i was wondering, have you got any interent filtering software, these can block access to sites that MSN and Yahoo may need for connection, and they are blocked due to the filtering software policies and configurations that are set.

I would suggest that remove both applications, run c cleaner then download one application and install it.

I have Firefox Fireeall and this has never prevented me from signing in before this. Firefox usually ask if you want the program to open.
