msn messenger 7 sign in problems
Posted on 2005-04-10
Hi there,I had msn messenger 7 beta and I didn't have any problem at all.I downloaded the final version and I can't sign in.I use win xp pro.I visited many foruns and sites,I've follow some advices to solve the problem but without result.
Actually I tried deleting the msn messenger folder in documents & settings/application data/microsoft dir,delete two registry keys in registry but again no results.I changed my password to my hotmail account and then messenger sign in .But when I disconect and connect again I had the same problem.The strange thing is that after few minutes the small window informed me about the two mails I had and I thought that messenger is connected but it wasn't.
Sometimes it takes few minutes to be connected but it connects to internet.But the most it doesn't connect at all.
I unistall it and install it again but the same.When I run the connection troublehooter it says that two settings must be the problem but I can't understand* which settings.It says that it will change the settings automatically but probably it doesn't because first I can't sign in again,and if I run again the troubleshooter it says the same.
I have the windows firewall off.I am using zone alarm firewall but I didn't have any problem in past and now I have it off to see any changes but I can't signin again!!.The winows messenger connected without problem.
*The reason that I can't undersatnd which settings I must change is a little bit strange but its true.I have the english language instead that I am greek because I can't understand the translation they do in greek when its about computer stuff,settings etc .So I prefer english language in my pc to understand better what I am see there.I have the english language in msn messenger too but the connection troubleshooter is coming in greek!I cant understand at all about the settings it talking about.!
Thanx for the help.
PS. Another strange thing is when I use another account it signs in without a prob.
