Carn't log on to msn messanger

Hi Rebecca,

You possibly don't have administrator privileges turned on.. If you're using Vista, then go to Control Panel > User Accounts > Turn User Account Control On or Off , and uncheck the box and press OK. Then reboot the computer and try to connect, it should work then..

Hope this helps
