    Had to do a clean install over the weekend and all went quite well apart from when i try to sign into MSN Messenger, i get an error message saying i need to be on-line, when i allready am. Any ideas on what could or couldn't be happening? ps. the email a/c with hotmail works fine though.

    Answers on a postcard to Darfion at TPF.

    Okay, everyone can relax. A professional is on the scene.

    Darfion, I think you should check your firewall.



    What?

    Firewall [check]
    contents [check]
    allow other programs that didn't work previously [check]
    give self pat on back [check]
    try and sort it out in future before asking for help on TPF [check]

    My previous FW was a Norton FW but i changed it to McAfee FW and i think it's a lot better. It blocks everything until you allow them and then remembers your preference. Well, i know that now don't i? :roll:
