Every time I tried to start up msn messenger, it would 'encounter an error and needs to be closed' on me. I tried installing the newest version, but the problem persists.

Hi DruggedAngel.

I'm quite new to these forums, so don't take this as a highly professional answer, but I had this problem as well, and I spent alot of time trying to figure out what was wrong, because it was one of my major symptoms after having acquired a virus. Now what I found out by browsing alot of boards is that if you're using a router, you should try resetting this, you can do this by unplugging it and waiting about 1 minute, or you can hit the reset button on the router, this is a solution that had worked for alot of the people, it was a problem with the firewall in the router.

Second thing you can try, if the first one didn't work, is to do what Crunchie told me to do in my post about my virus problem. I had read somewhere that the problem with MSN might be related to a virus, a really annoying one that also turned off my run command, my task manager and turn off computer command, also disabled changing in my registry, but seeing how these are none of your symptoms I don't really know if you have this virus. The problems I had with registry, task manager etc was easily fixed but the MSN problem took a bit more.

Anyways here is the post Crunchie made for me, so please give him all the credit, all I know is that after I did what he posted, I was able to run msn again without it encountering an error everytime it tried to log on.

Hi and welcome to Daniweb forums :).

Please download this file - combofix.exe by sUBs

  • Save it to your Desktop
  • Now physically disconnect from the internet and STOP all your monitoring programs (Antivirus/Antispyware, Guards and Shields)
  • Click on your START button and choose Run. Then copy/paste the entire content of the following quotebox (Including the "" marks and the Symbols) into the run box.

  • Click OK and this will start ComboFix.
  • When finished, it will produce a log. Please save that log to a Notepad File to post in your next reply along with a fresh HJT log.

Do not mouse-click combofix's window while it is running. That may cause it to stall.

* After you have saved the logs, restart your system to re-enable all the programs that were disabled during the running of ComboFix.

* Reconnect to the internet

* Post the following logs/Reports:

  • ComboFix.txt
  • Fresh HijackThis log run after all the other tools have performed their cleanup.

Looks like Crunchie's solution worked! Thanks, and to you Doinker for directing me here. :)

When I start my laptop the msn messenger window will open but when i click on the box to type my password it will freeze and the eventually make me have to use Ctrl Alt Del to end it... and sometimes it will reload but most times it wont and making me use windows messenger... any suggestions?
