  1. hello all,

    wat's the latest?

    I have a problem with my windows live messenger.

    It seems that it forgets my live id and password whenever i start up my comp.

    I have tried checking the boxes remember me and remember my password with no luck. it just forgets it whenever i startup.

    I have checked all of the settings and it is not to do with the settings as every setting is correctly adjusted. This includes this is a shared computer option - it is unchecked.

    PLZ help! :(
    regards. :wave:

    Are you using CCleaner? Some are reporting this problem because they have CCleaner set to remove their Cookies.

    the program doesn't run anymore.

    Also, i have a beta version of live messenger version 9.0. does this affect it?

    I see this is offered in many of the 'torrent' clients. Where did you download your beta version from? Keep in mind that beta=bugs and troubleshooting goes on to remove as many as possible before public release.
