Hi Experts,

    My MSN instant game suddenly refused to work ...... everything else works fine, I can send and receive files, messages ...etc. But I couldn't invite my friend to an instant game .... they can't invite me either .....

    I am sure it is not the problem of network ... b/c when I used another computer in the same room (with my msn login), I didn't have such a problem.....

    Therefore, I do check where the problem is ??? Thanks !

>> My MSN instant game suddenly refused to work

Restore the Operating System to a Previous State in Windows XP:
http://support.microsoft.com/?kbid=306084

coz this happens due to a blocked port from ur internet connection,,,, its not allwoing u to play msn games, means its blocking u from doing it !!

so before messing with ur internet connection or uninstalling msn etc etc.... best and safe way is to restore ur system to the time when it was working fine,,,, do it and let me know the results !!

Good Luck :)

lol that may not work either first make sure everyone has the latest msn versions, if it was working that is usually the first thing that can change, when an update comes if you dont instal it it wont work, everyone should have msn 6.1 and 6.2 released games to msn toolbar in January with over 1.2 million times since its release but they put it on hold becuase of some technical problems and this may also be part of the problem if you have installed it. try uninstalling and reinstalling.
Make sure you have an anti virus installed and setup to scan any files being sent through the msn options menues.

also if you upgraded to DirectX 9.0, some multiplayer games or MSN Messenger may not work correctly. For example, MSN Messenger may not start, or your multiplayer game may not work when you try to make an online connection
Visit the following Microsoft Web site to download and install the latest version of DirectX:

What does it mean to be "Always On"?

Is your cloud always on? With an Always On cloud you won't have to worry about downtime for maintenance or software application code updates, ensuring that your bottom line isn't affected.
