    This error seems to come from MSN 9 Beta.

    I would suggest uninstalling it and installing 8.1

    do your friends have the same program installed on there PC's/ If not and they are using a different instant messanger they will not get your messeges. Invite them to join and if there do your problem is solved. When did this problem start, and were you able to get your messages to them before? and if so what messanger were you using at the time

Hello There,

Try the new Windows Live 2009, and have to do a clean up for your old LWM 9 beta, and others, this is done when you go on SAVE MODE and programs files, and look for Messenger, delete that folder, after uninstalling WLM 9 beta, and others. ok,
then install the new LWM 2009, and if you have mcafe see the fix for cam, and other issues. but it work well, if you do the right steps.
keep in mind that you have to let windows messenger pass on the firewall too.

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.

My hotmail account is blocked


In the age of instant messaging and constant messages from friends and sometimes less-than friends, it's no wonder Windows Live Messenger (formerly MSN) and other instant message systems have the ability to block certain contacts.
For the blocked, however, this process can be uncomfortable.
There are methods available online for you to check if your friend has simply been absent from their messenger or if you have been blocked.

Open a browser window and go to the website Block Status (see Below).
http://www.blockstatus.com/msn/stchecker
In the top, middle-right tabs you will see the option for "Block Checker."
Click Block Checker to open a page with a text box requesting the Windows Live Messenger email address of the person you think has blocked you.
The "Windows Live Messenger" address can alternatively be Gmail, Hotmail, Live or Yahoo email addresses.


Type in an email address and click "Check Status."
A text box will appear with a status updater informing you if you have been blocked or if the contact is simply offline.

Checking on MSN

Open Window Live Messenger and sign in.


Scroll through your contacts list and right-click on the contact you wish to check. Scroll down and click the "View Profile" tab.


Check in the contact's "Notes" section.
If you cannot post a message there, it means you have been blocked.

Who Blocked Me

Log on to the website WhoBlockedMe (see Below).
http://www.whoblocked.me/index.php?lang=en


Log in to your Messenger with your email and password using the text boxes.
(Change your Windows Live Messenger password after using this system for safety reasons.)


Click the tab "Click To See Who Blocked You" to see a list of those who have blocked you.
This also works to find out who has deleted you completely.

I can't find out how to send an instant message


Oh, its simple. In a nutshell you need to download and install yahoo messenger. Once you've done that, you need to include the person you want to send a instant message to as one of your contacts or friends. You do that by getting their email address and putting it in your contact, buddy or friend list. Once you have it there you will click on it and send them a instant message. Now I think the first time you send them one they will have to approve you as someone they want to receive messages from by accepting or rejecting your IM. Oh, and they on the other end would need your email address included in their contact, friend or buddy list.

I want to know how to send a im


Hi,

If you are on a PC the simplest way is to use Windows Live Messenger. Have a look under Windows Live in All Programs.

Start it up and create an account.

You will then be able to send a message to another user who will need to supply you with an email address.
