Question about Microsoft MSN Messenger Connect Service

1 Answer

MSN Messenger stopped flashing alerts when email comes in

Three weeks ago I downloaded the latest MSN Messenger version. For a few days it worked fine, but then it stopped flashing popup messages when I get an email (I use Hotmail and the Firefox browser). Today I uninstalled Messenger and downloaded again the older version, Messenger 8.1, but it still does not alert me when an email comes in. (Although it does tell me when a contact opens Messenger.) I tried unchecking and re-checking the "alerts & sounds" box in the tools/options menu, to no avail. I'm a reporter and need this function to keep track of newsbreaks, editors requests, etc. Canst help?

You need to setup you MSN Messenger to control your camera. Download the latest version (MSN Messenger) first and install it. Sometimes older versions will not work with a cam. Also, download another messenger like Yahoo, and try that as well.

Having problem with my notebook pc


Hi,

If you have Norton Internet Security you need to do the following as suggested by Symantec. If you don't have Norton, let me know, but more or less this is the same across the board for whatever antivirus suite you have, disabled the instant messaging protection and then proceed to download and update the MSN Messenger.

Symantec document ID: 2004110108242406 (11/29/2004)
Disable NAV Instant Messenger scanning to stop the error message.
Uninstall MSN Messenger
Install the latest version of MSN Messenger from MSN.com
Reenable NAV Instant Messenger scanning.

Regards,
Worldvet
