  1. I just reinstalled windows live messenger 2009 in my laptop. I always manage to sign in but it stops responding a few seconds after that. If I'm lucky enough it works for a few minutes. I've tried some suggestions online but they don't work.

    Here are the details of the error. Hope it gives a clue on how to solve it.

    The program msnmsgr.exe version 14.0.8117.416 stopped interacting with Windows and was closed. To see if more information about the problem is available, check the problem history in the Action Center control panel.

    Per your PM: Windows Live Messenger is outside of my area of expertise. I don't use messaging programs.

    I found the following bits of info:
    Microsoft has switched off Active Links in Windows Live Messenger 2009.
    Possibly this might be related to your problem. More HERE>

    Hopefully someone in this forum will be able to assist you.
