Window live messanger not working


Go to add/remove programs, to uninstall, Find messenger. When you try to uninstall messenger it will/should give you a "Repair" option, do that first. If that doesn't work, try a download of the latest version and try to install that. Else try link below. www.kellys-korner-xp.com/xp_messenger.htm

Windows Live Messenger problem. I try to send an instant message and up comes the message 'None of your contacts have an instant message address defined' This started ther 22nd February. I have...


I have Windows Live myself. It works exactly like Yahoo messenger. You have to send out invites to see the people online that you know and they will see that you are online as well. That is all there is to it. Please respond back with more details if this is confusing you or you can not get it to work for you. It's so easy it's too easy. Some times people do not think of the easiest part of things. I am an Audio Engineer and was trained on how to start with the simplest issue there is and work my way up to the problem at hand. Engineering is all about the way one thinks and goes about proble solving.

Everytime i try and download anything, the pc runs through the procedure and when finished simply dissapears, i have looked through my computer and can not find it anywhere.. please can you help this is...


Pjamas,

I'm going to go out on a limb here and say. "I bet you have Internet explorer 8 installed" How do I know? This is a problem that just became apparant when people started running the new IE beta 2.
It even hit me. As far as solutions go, there isn't one YET as IE 8 is still in beta it is not supported yet and they have not released a patch for it yet.

So for now your left with a couple of options.
1.) Use another browser for your download needs until IE Beta 2.5 arrives (its not announced yet)

2.) Uninstall Internet Explorer 8 and revert back to IE7 Until IE8 is in a release state (RTM)

If 2.) is your option of choice. (This is the option I chose myself) Heres how its done.

Open Control Panel. Choose Programs. Then Uninstall. then "View installed updates'
now scroll through until you find "Windows Internet Explorer 8" Right click on it and select uninstall

Don't worry all of your bookmarks and personal settings will get transferred back to IE7
After the reboot you should be all set.

If you have any problems with this procedure or have other questions please comment back here and I will do my best to answer.

When i am on msn and want to put on webcam a message appears in a conversation saying Messenger is not available right now. Please try again later. (0x8ac70202)


This might be a compatibility problem between your webcam drivers with the new Windows Live Messenger program. You may want to:

1. Update your webcam drivers and see if Windows Live Messenger can detect it when you run the Audio Video setup from its Tools menu.

2. Or you can downgrade back to the older version of Windows Live Messenger which is compatible for your camera. Doing this however also requires that you uninstall all the Windows Live Beta products from your computer.

Note: You will not see a separate Windows Live Messenger on your Add/Remove programs, instead you will either see there Windows Live Beta products or Windows Live Essentials.

You can download the older versions of Windows Live Messenger from:

Windows Live Messenger 8.1:
http://www.microsoft.com/downloads/details.aspx?familyid=d78f2ff1-79ea-4066-8ba0-ddbed94864fc&displaylang=en

I have Flash 6 player and it was not playing swf files so I downloaded the 9 player. When I try to play flash files my computer still says it is using the 6 version player. How do I get the PC to recoginze...


Hey jlriley45,

In some instances, programs will install themselves without removing or updating information from previous versions that were already installed on a computer. To avoid such a problem, it is generally recommended that users uninstall these previous versions before installing the new one.

In order to uninstall Flash Player 6, there are a couple of things that you can do. First, Adobe has developed an uninstaller program that you can download from their main support website:

http://kb.adobe.com/selfservice/viewContent.do?externalId=tn_14157&sliceId=1

You'll want to make sure that you quit all other programs before running the uninstaller, as well as make sure that you do not have an anti-virus/anti-spyware program running in the background. Run the program, and follow the step-by-step instructions that appear on your screen.

Once this is done, you may also wish to check the Installed Programs list for your computer. This can typically be accessed in most versions of Windows by clicking on the "Start" bar on your desktop, choosing "Settings," then "Control Panel." After you're in the control panel, double-click on the option that says "Add/Remove Programs" to open the list of currently installed programs. If Flash Player still appears in this menu, highlight it and click on the "Remove" option to the right of the program name.

After you've uninstalled the program you should be able to download and install Flash Player 9 with minimal fuss. However, in the event that you still cannot get the program to function correctly, you may wish to visit Adobe's product support site for more information:

http://www.adobe.com/support/

Hope this helps you out.

Sincerely,
Aaron

I searched for hours for a solution to this. Here it is:

1). Restart your computer, NOT using ctrl - alt - del
2). Press F1 when guided to.
3). When you get into the config menu, select Start Options, then hit enter twice.

There are all the options you need! Cool, huh?
