Does anyone else have major problems with MSN Messenger? Mine tends to freeze up a lot- especially right after I log in. And if I have a browser window open with my hotmail account open, the messenger freezes THAT up too. So right now, the only thing I can access is the airliners.net forum and chatroom!

I like my messenger.....but I've been getting booted off of MSN a lot...not sure whether to blame the local phone lines or MSN...probably MSN. I've had no problems with messenger, though, and like it better than AIM

Yes, MSN messenger is nice but it really tends to have problems.
I can't chat with my collegues in my same LAN as we are behind a firewall.
I can chat with someone outside my LAN but it usually crashes every few minutes and I have to close all other browse windows except my Hotmail. This despite the 3.6 version is designed to operate in LAN and firewall environment.

Don- I've had the same problems. It does lose the connection without warning quite a lot. I doubt it is the phone lines if both of us are having the problem.
I can handle that for the most part.... its just the freezing up I hate!

I've had ICQ for the longest time. I don't know anyone who has MSN or even AIM. But MS and AOL need to release compact or lite versions of their respective IM programs because they're getting way too big and excessive. They just hog memory- especially ICQ. I don't even try to run it on my laptop.
