Question about PC Desktops

2 Answers

Hi, I am a Messenger user with L plates from downunder! What I would like to know is how I can get Messenger to sit in my system tray when I start up my laptop, so that I can then simply log in and be "live". Instead, I keep having to go to Start, Windows Live, etc etc and then select Messenger. The Messenger icon then sits in the system tray, but only until I shut down. Second part of my question - I have two user friends and would like to have three-way discussion - how do I get them both on line at the same time - assuming they are both online at the time, of course :-) Many thanks for your help!

Possible problem with secure http connection of messenger


Yahoo Messenger? It is pretty well protected unless someone hacked your user name or password--someone who knows you?

Consider getting a new user name and password--good idea to change that password every once in a while.

You could contact Yahoo but they often provide little help.

If you are using a router and wireless for the unit--make sure its protected with a security setup and change that password also--so no one can get in and see what you are doing.

Either someone hacked the router or your Messenger name and password.

I can't find the icon to have a web cam conversation...it is usually at the bottom right corner of the screen...it is a little man...what do I do?...it dissappeared ...how?...i don't know!


It sounds like you are using chating program such as MSN or AOL. If you can't see it in the bottom right corner, you can check whether there is a arrow on the edge of that bottom right corner, you can click on the arrow to show more icons there. Sometimes the system is set to hide the idle icons in the bottom right corner. You can undo that by right clicking there and choose properties from the pop-up menu and then select the Notification Area tab or something like the System Tray tab depending on the Operating System installed. Then you will see the option to Hide Idle Icons. You can uncheck it to see all the icons.
If the icon is still not there, start it from the Start menu. It should be under Program and Microsoft Live Messenger or AOL Messenger or something like those. If your computer freeze when doing that, you might need to restart, or choose ALT-DEL-CONTROL and select Start Task Manager and kill the process about MSN or AOL. Don't hesitate to turn to me if any questions. Thanks.
