Hi guys

Having a problem using mac os 9.2. I had installed msn messenger (for that version of mac) and had set it to run automatically, but after a few days it started to crash several times a day. It was fine after I uninstalled the messenger. After a few days, I thought it was msn that was causing the problem, so I installed yahoo messenger him but the same thing happened again. Well, I had to unistall yahoo too.
Can you please tell me how to fix it?

Thank you

What kind of crash? Lockup? Error message?

Lockup
When I was using word or excel, none of the keys used to work so I always had to switch the power off from the wall.

After switching it back on, occassionaly a smily face and a question mark flashed alternatively. At such times, I had to insert an operating CD to get it boot up again.

OWWWW. NEVER switch the power off from the wall. Always use the keyboard commands or the reset and/or power button. Did the mouse still move after a lockup? No error messages?

NO error message.
Mouse and keyboard are helpless. Nothing moves.

No, it is working fine after uninstalling the Messenger.
If I install messenger then everything freezes.

Same should apply. As long as its the most recent. Though it IS a MS product so dont expect too much.
