So when i try to open windows live messenger, it shows as it is running in my "windows task manager", but nothing opens; no icon in the tool bar no windows open

If i click it again, another msnmsgr.exe appears in my windows task manager.

Every time i try to re-open it, another one starts, but nothing happens

I've tried re-installing it, I have the latest version, I've tried restarting my computer

Any help would be appreciated

Thanks in advance

Hi Shmiddy,

How long ago was it when it started doing this Is there any programs that you may have installed when it was still working that may have caused it to do this

Hi Wipas and Shmiddy,

Ive been doing much research on the topic, and heres what ive gathered as far as options to try..

If you have a router, try resetting it.. hold the reset button, unplug for 10 secs. etc.,



Heres a link talking about it.. many people have also had much problems with this.

WEll i just used the "restore point" to a date where it was working

i think it had something to do with the java plug in i installed

thanks for the help
