    Ok my msn messenger is playing up kinda badly every time i try and sign in i get a message saying, "MSN Messenger Service failed because the service is temporarily unavailible. Please try again later."

    Now that is a bit of bad luck because all my friend's can get on using MSN 6 .. I just uninstalled it and installed MSN 5 and that does the same.. I have just reformated aswel so that shouldnt effect it... This all started last nite at about 5 am....

    So insted of me messing about with msn what is the program called which allows you to talk to people who are on AIM, Msn, ICQ etc... ?? i know there's one around but i just can't remember the name..

    thanks for your help

    You might have a firewall or firewall software that blocks the port used by MSN Messenger. Not sure what that is off hand, but you should be able to find some help here:

    Most likly MSN was updating their service. If you are using MSN Messenger 6.0, you will get a pre-warning, saying the service will shut down in 5 minutes for maintenance, and how you will not be able to login for awhile. Then in 5 minutes msn signs out everyone. When you try to sign on you get the above error you mentioned.
