Windows Live Messenger Problems

  pineapples4life 16:57 17 Jul 2008


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.

Thanks in advance

Have you tried System Restore back to before the annoyance started?
