Question about Microsoft Windows XP Professional for PC

Yahoo messenger,msn messenger

When we try to sign into messenger, it just goes blank. says to retry. I think something is blocking these from starting up. Another user was on this computer and set up some anti virus programs, i think he somehow blocked the use of these other programs.

You will need to log onto a user with administrative properties then get into the firewall that is blocking access to these programs from the internet and allow them full access.

My msn keeps signing out and i have a good connection

Lately MSN has been having many compatibility problems so there could be a million different things messing up your MSN. I advise using meebo instead. Meebo enables you to connect to MSN, yahoo, facebook and/or almost any instant messaging service out there from your internet browser. Very useful when you are on other computers than your own and you want to connect to MSN.

How to chat using telnet in vista

Telnet is not the greatest programme to use for chat. However, Vista does not have telnet enabled as default. To install it go to:

Start menu->Control Panel\Programs\Programs and Features

on left select Turn windows features on and off

After a while a box will appear = look for Telnet Client and select it and press ok

Now go to Start Menu->Programs->Accessories
select Command Prompt
enter telnet and the IP Address of the computer you wish to connect with

However, for chat I would suggest the more traditional chat programmes.

MSN Messenger (Free from Internet)
Yahoo Messenger (Free from Internet)
ICQ Messenger (Free from Internet)
AIM Messenger (Free from Internet)

If most of your email contacts are using Hotmail then use MSN,
if they use AOL then use AIM
If they use Yahoo then use Yahoo Messenger
Otherwise use ICQ

Happy Chatting
