Windows Live Messenger keeps disconnecting

  1. Hi all,

    Recently my Windows Live messenger updated itself and since then has constantly disconnected/connected. Everyime I message someone it immediately tells me the message cannot be delivered and disconnects.

    I have totally uninstalled and re-installed the program but to no avail. It is extremely annoying and I cannot seem to pinpoint the problem.

    If anyone else is or has experienced this problem please let me know.

    Cheers

    For those that care, the problem was:

    Zone Alarm - IM Security - Spam Blocker (now off on MSN and working).


    Cheers

    many would consider Windows messenger a security risk and thus elect to block it.

    yea, IM is neat, but I would rather have a secured system than open the door
    for a soon-to-be trashed system (imo)
