    MSN Help.

    I recently installed the new Version 9 (2009) Version of msn.

    However it keeps crashing and will only hold itself online before disconecting for a couple of minutes.

    Now it wont even load at all with this screen coming up:


    It says that the DEP has closed it however you cant turn it off for msn?

    i have checked all settings and have no idea, im know a fair bit bout pcs but is being a pain in the arse!!


    Laptop stats:

    Sony Vaio
    2Ghz Centrino Duo
    Vista Business


    Does anyone know if i can get back the old Version 8.1? i had 8.5 but putting that on it wont let me sign in on any of my msn accounts and just wants to upgrade.


    Cheers people!!

    lol in all my years in IT I've never seen a screenshot like that before, I think the dirty hand might be your problem

    Anyways, mine upgraded to version 2009 (14.0.8050.1202) recently and worked fine. I would try uninstalling, reboot, reinstall as a starting point. You on Vista or XP?

    btw if you have system restore enabled you could use that to roll back to your previous version.

    A while back Acer laptops had a conflict between an inbuilt piece of software and msn/windows live messenger which caused this. A patch was released that sorted it. Might be worthwhile checking both your windows patches and also Sony Viao's patches to make sure you're up-to-date.
