Ever since I changed from dial up to broadband a few days ago MSN messenger 7.5 will not sign in.
Oddly Windows messenger will sign me in.
Does anyone know why this is and what I can do about it?


Have you gone through the network troubleshooter of MSN? (tools Menu, options, connection tab or area, and then start the troubleshooter) it should try to get an IP address, and some other stuff, and it should go through all the steps and then log you in....

Yes I've tried the troubleshooter several times but it doesn't seem to help.

Ok, are you running a firewall, such as norton (if so, try disabling this, by right clicking it's icon in the system tray and choosing disable).

Also, go to start, run type in: regsvr32 MSXML3.dll
you should a confirmation box telling you the register has succeeded.

Then, make sure the data and time on your computer are set correctly (don't ask me why, msn messenger is real stupid about that).

Let me know if that fixes it.

Hehe sorry but no it didn't work.
Only firewall I have is the Windows one.

However, I've downloaded msn messenger 6.2 and that seems to work ok. But anything newer and I can't sign in. Very odd.
