I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

Try going to settings and then notifications, see if the notifications there are off or on for each of those apps.

Previously used this phone with Zune on my now-deceased PC with Windows XP (although even that took a while to establish). Now have an HP laptop with Windows 7 but Zune consistently refuses to recognize it and just comes up with the usual 'disconnect, turn off and reconnect'. I have downloaded both Microsoft Fixes and neither of them find anything wrong; I have uninstalled/reinstalled countless times; I have been into my certificates and made changes and/or deletions - and I m now simply running out of options ...and patience if I'm honest.

Almost all the internet advice suggests the fix is easy. Would the fact I've worked on this for over a month now suggest I am a one-off?!!!

A Google search revealed that there are many people who have had the same problem still unresolved after two years or so - just as often with other Windows Phones rather than Nokia. Can anyone help please?

A:Microsoft Zune will not recognize my Nokia Lumia 800...

Before I get to the poll a little history is in order I got my first droid retiring my GS moved to iOS from WinMO few years ago But I think it is the most 920 or ATIV Lumia S regrettable of decisions I made Because despite the fact that I always went for the higher end droid at least of its time e g Desire SGS SGSII Sensation SGSIII to name few I never found a stable solidly performing android phone They all suffered from random crashes reboots sluggishness hang ups and I only install apps - I need nothing more They all have various annoying quirks as well e g SGS ATIV S or Lumia 920 III doesn t want to find any WiFi network at times folders on home screen will randomly open at ATIV S or Lumia 920 their own my older Sensation s screen would stop responding quot in some places quot etc IMHO almost all droids I owned had great hardware but a crappy OS Few months ago I got my hands on Lumia and used it along side my Sensation SGS III for months and my views about WP totally changed It easily outperforms all those multi-core droids with its dated single core SoC being absolutely rock solid and very easy to use UI unlike androids copycat of iOS It is time again to jump ship only thing to decide is should I get ATIV S or Lumia though I m tilting toward the later due to better support upgrade cycle of Nokia compared to Samsung However SuperAMOLED display of ATIV S will be more battery friendly and it also have expansion slot ATIV S comparison Lumia specs Specs of HTC X amp Accord rumored Lumia along side Samsung ATIV S So what you guys would pick nbsp

A:ATIV S or Lumia 920

I'm firmly set on the Lumia 920 right now. I've always had a thing for Nokia handsets, and until Android hit the scene I only ever owned them. Plus, I don't think I'll miss the lack of storage expansion (my SGS3 has 16GB now and I'm only using 1GB of it!), and I think Nokia will be quicker and more supportive with its own apps than Samsung will be.

My windows live messenger IM feature is update and working fine. My web cam allows others to view me. However the other person that I want to view is having problems letting me view them. Every time they send an invite for me to view their web cam, a message appears under the invite immediately that they canceled the invite..they are saying that the install of their webcam is correct, however it ask them to update to the newest version of windows live messenger..when they did still didn't work and they couldn't even view themselves from their cam.

You might try again in SAFE MODE.

You might try downloading RegCleaner by Viourno from, then using it to remove all evidence of AIM inn the registry. It is easy, and the changes are recoverable. Usually, you can rid your machine of AIM and all other AOL evils.

On a pc where xp-sp2 was reinstalled from scratch, Live Messenger works properly except for sound. The person we call can hear us fine but his voice is garbled. When we play a DVD movie on the pc, sound is also garbled.

On the other hand, a music cd plays fine (over same player). And when there is sound on PowerPoint (PPS) documents, sound is also okay.

The sound device is a built-in Creative SB PCI 128 (Ensoniq ES 5880). We updated the firmware with an upgrade from the SB site: SBPCI128Setupus_w2k. No change. We then tried to install the most recent firmware version WebDrvsV5_12_01. We got an error message telling us we had no Sound Blaster device (!!!) although it's a Creative SB PCI 128 (Ensoniq ES 5880).

A:Sound problem with Live Messenger

Go to Control Panel -> System -> Hardware -> Device Manager, then remove or disable the existing driver. Then go to the sound manufacturer's web site to download the driver one more time.

MY windows messenger is no working. It comes up with an error code: 80048820 nad extended error code: 80048412. Some other things that I think are related to this problem are:
-My time will not synchronize...when I click "Update Now" "An error occured getting the status of the last synchronization. The RPG server is unavailable." I was trying to update with "" and "" but both do not work.
-I also have a problem with this certificate keeps saying it has expired. I'll take some screenshots for you to look at and hopefully you can solve my problems.


How long have these errors been happening? Have you installed or removed any programs or utilities recently?

Try downloading RegScrubXP and run it. It is a free utility that cleans your registry safely and it works very well. Do a Google Search to find it

I am quite new to routers, and they have always seemed quite daunting to fiddle with.

Due to an upgrade on my BT line, i had to get a router instead of my old modem, the router works fine now (BT Voyager 220v ADSL Voice Router), and will connect to DSL and ethernet fine, but my MSN Messenger will no longer connect.

It is strange since other applications such as Internet Explorer, Security applications, etc. can.

I suspect it has something to do with port forwarding, but looking at guides on this and attempting to implement them I find does not solve the problem, although, I could be doing it wrong.

OS: Windows XP (Home Edition SP2)

Any help/guidance, would be most helpful!

Dear All

Half duplex, mean; we can not transmit and receive at the same time. It should either send or receive, it can not be both at the same time.

Now with MSN messenger or Yahoo, why cann't we talk at the same time ? Is it because of half duplex technique? or something elase?


I have got two type of connections (Dialup and ADSL)

Half duplex is either send or receive.
Set your (ADSL) NIC to full-duplex or auto, and your problem should be solved.

It is peer to peer if you do file transfers, voice and video chats. Otherwise the IP is untraceable.

A:Yahoo messenger not working

I certainly understand the issue. These steps might help you fixing it. This is an issue that is cropping up more and more.

If just a new problem try exiting Yahoo Messenger and then relaunching it. Even try rebooting your computer. If both those fail to solve your problem then try the suggestions below.
The first thing to check is to make sure you have scripting enabled in Internet Explorer. Internet Explorer is integrated into Yahoo Messenger so things that go wrong with IE can affect Yahoo Messenger. Here is the yahoo help page about that:
In the Start Menu click on Run. Type, without the quotes, ?regsvr32 jscript.dll? and then click OK. Next, repeat the process but this time type in the Run box ?regsvr32 vbscript.dll? and click OK. Please note, if you are using Windows Vista/7/8/8.1 temporarily disable the User Account Control (UAC). You can easily turn it back on. On the Control Panel (Category View) choose User Accounts and Family Safety, next choose User Accounts, and then click Turn User Account Control on or off.
If the above does not fix your problem and if you are using Windows XP, you can update your Windows Script to version 5.7. In my experience helping others, this is the step that has helped the most people. Exit all browser windows and chat programs including Yahoo Messenger before installing. Here is link from Microsoft to update that: you can do an internet search for Windows Script 5.7 and choose the Microsoft link.
This version of Window Script is already included with Vista, so you would not use that link. There is also a Windows Script 5.7 released for Windows 2000 and you can find that here:
The newer Windows versions will have Windows Script 5.8 inbuilt. For more info on the version, please visit this link:

I would think some smart computer geek (and I use that term as an accolade) could
come up with a Firefox Add-On that could automatically, or selectively as desired,
be embedded in or attached to emails irregardless of browser that would be activated
upon opening and send notification to the sender that it has been opened.

If legal constraints require, it could maybe ask for permission to send notification,
but that kind of nullifies lots of the reasons for something like that in the first place.

Couldn't find it in control panel > uninstall/change programs so i just went to the Windows Live folder and tried a Shift + Delete to just get rid of the program completely.
One problem is that it wont let me delete all of the files (relating to the photo gallery and contacts) - saying that i dont have permission even though i'm the admin.
Another problem is that even though (as far as i can see) all of the files relating to the messenger have gone - when i run the installer it says that its already installed so i cant re-install it!
Any help is greatly appreciated

Every time I try and sign in on Windows Live, I get the message that they can't sign me at the time and the service is 'currently unavailable'. I get an error code of 80070005.
The only thing that I can think of that would have any bearing on this is that I recently failed to act on the fact that my anti-virus had expired and was subjected to a malware attack which I think I have now got on top of after uploading Microsoft Security Essentials.
However, I have been told that a malware attack can leave this legacy. I was also told that running the trial version of ESET NOD32 would sort it. It didn't, despite scanning for a total of 16hrs.!

Technology giant and Skype parent Microsoft is integrating its chat service, Windows Live Messenger with the VoIP service, according to a Nov. 6 blog post from Skype, a move that signals the essential retirement of the world?s most popular instant messaging service. By updating to Skype, Messenger users can instant message and video call their Messenger friends, wrote Microsoft?s president of the Skype division Tony Bates. Microsoft bought Skype last year for $8.5 billion.

After much searching and trying just about everything i finally fixed the MSN Messenger Error 80072745 login issue by doing the following:
On the netgear router there is a setting to enable IM .... even though i had this set to enable i believe the router data file may have been corrupted. I enabled the following services inbound..... 443, 7001, 9 and 1683 and saved the settings. Then i applied the IM enable setting again. This then allowed me to login to MSN. i then removed the ports in services which disconnected me from MSN then reapplied the IM setting again.... bingo it all works..... I am not sure but i feel there may be a configuration save issue with the netgear router or the configuration can become corrupted for whatever reason.

A:Windows Live Messenger 2009 not responding in Windows 7

Per your PM: Windows Live Messenger is outside of my area of expertise. I don't use messaging programs.

I found the following bits of info:

Windows Live Messenger 2009 customers should consider upgrading to Windows Live Messenger 2011, provided that they?re using Windows Vista SP2 or Windows 7, in order to take advantage of additional security mitigations capable of blocking the spreading of a self-replicating worm.Click to expand...

Microsoft has switched off Active Links in Windows Live Messenger 2009.

?Because we?ve now blocked active links in Messenger 2009, starting [Nov. 12], some customers may also see a notification in the main Messenger window warning them that some features might not be available.?Click to expand...

Possibly this might be related to your problem. More HERE>

Hopefully someone in this forum will be able to assist you.

Hello Everyone .

I've been running some problems with Windows Live Messenger 8.1 about few days already
If I double click on the Messenger shortcut then It won't just open ( Most of the time , but there are exceptions ) , however it appears on the task manager .
If I disable my network connection or unplug the internet cable , then Live Messenger will pop up , but when I unplug / enable the network , msn just freezes and the program seems to not respond .
I think that Msn may bein conflict with Winamp since they sometimes crash together .
I'm running Windows XP 64-Bit .

Thanks ,
Chris .

I have this major issue with my MSN messenger (on my PC) whenever I connect it to a ethernet switch so I could use it (my PC) with my Laptop, so together both have internet connection.. my MSN messenger works fine and it could sign in easily, but when I disconnect my ethernet switch and connect to just my modem, my MSN messenger says it could not connect to the internet or that there's no internet connection where there is! (I forgot which error code but its well known, I've searched before and it said it could be the anti-virus etc but I have no problems with my anti-virus and programs it monitors). Anyone know how to stop this stupid silly error with Live Messenger?

A:Live Messenger works when I connect it to a Ethernet switch?

Can you ping once you use the modem? You might not be authenticating to the WWW properly and Msn is blinded with connectivity by the modem being unable to do so.

Windows Live Messenger - Change Number of Reconnect Attempts + Maximize Security

I have a small issue with the Windows Live Messenger automatic reconnect feature, and was wondering if there is any way to change it.
Thing is, whenever I lose my internet connection for a minute, Messenger obviously disconnects, and attempts to reconnect after a certain amount of time (~1 minute). Usually its first 2 attempts fail at connecting to my account, and then the attempts stop.
I need a way to make Messenger try to reconnect once or twice more, because usually the 4th-5th time I try, Messenger gets it right.

Thank you very much for any help whatsoever.
Greatly appreciated.

A:Windows Live Messenger - Change Number of Reconnect Attempts

as far as i know there's not a way to change this, usually it will keep trying to reconnect with longer intervals in between, but obviously this is not the case here

i expect it would be a set thing in the program's code and not something that you could change easily

This is happening wil all my numbers, can anyone suggest how i resolve it

Call your own mobile SP and ask them what they are playing at. I suspect that this is "a strategic withdrawel of service facilities" - in other words they don't make any money out of the calls so they have stopped access through MSN. B*st*rds.

I've been running Windows Live Messenger lately and every once in awhile during use my computer reboots for no apparent reason. Looking around in the system I found the original Windows Messenger still in the system. I tried to remove using add or remove programs but it's not in the list. When I go to just delete the folder it tells me that other programs may get messed up by deleting it. I uninstalled Windows Live Messenger and tried again to the same effect. I would like to just delete Windows Messenger and reinstall Windows Live. Does anyone know of any problems with deleting the original Windows Messenger folder?

A:Windows Messenger issue

you can't delete windows messenger because it's part of windows

you may be able to remove it by going to control panel > add/remove programs (if you're using windows xp) and clicking the button that says add/remove windows features (or something along those lines - i'm using vista and can't remember the exact name). it may be in there somewhere

I've recently noticed a Windows Live Messenger hijacking trend. Some contacts, specifically the ones who tend not to sign in as often, randomly come online, throw in a spam message with link, and go offline. As I mentioned, the hijackers tend to target the contacts most often online. I am also getting some vulgar usernames sending me likewise vulgar links. Obviously you wouldn't want to open op the links, and especially not enter your Messenger username and password, one of the links directs you to a website asking for your Messenger account (yes, I did open the link :/). How many other people are having this problem, and what are some ways you can combat it?

The poll questions options are: Yes, I am getting spam from messenger, or am sending spam, and No, I am not sending or receiving spam via messenger.

A:Windows Messenger Spam...are you getting any?

At least 5 people on my contact are doing that, and honestly some of these things are so obvious, i have no idea why people click on them and get infected...

Most of the infected are people whom i rarely talk to and i know have little to no knowledge about computers and perhaps digital security... >.>

At least i'm logging in my msn using Gmail so when it sends those fake links, even through email that you have to log in to hotmail or what not, i can instantly tell its fake heh.

Ditched hotmail a long time ago. That web mail service? is just spam bait. As i know you can't inform them, it blocks incoming but leaves outgoing open perhaps? Best you can do is block them...

Amusing story though, my OLD hotmail account got hacked into and used for this purpose. I saw myself log into my own old account and start sending mail out, so i went and killed my Hotmail account. Not sure how that happened since i haven't used my hotmail in over 4-5 years but yeah, somehow they managed to grab passwords for the account....

I?d suggest that you do a couple things:

First, run a virus/malware scan on your computer using your anti-virus. Second, I?d change your password for your Windows Live account. Third, I?d contact the people on your contact list and ask them if they received any suspicious communications from you.

Last, I?d suggest that you go through and manually re-add your contacts. This might be a good time to take those contacts out who you do not speak with much ? a little spring cleaning.

I recently re-formated my local hard drives and reinstalled win xp. I am currently installing all the software I need... I installed windows live messenger and apparently successfully. Apparently! I don't have any contacts on my list! I tried signing in with another account and the contact lists are also gone. I signed in on windows messenger (the one that comes withe windows...) and the contacts appear.

I've researched for help and the procedure to solve this consists of erasing folder content. But I do not have those folders! No "Contacts" folder nor a "My messenger email address" folder on "Windows Live Contacts" folder. I tried adding those folders to their respective places but it didn't solve anything.

I tried also to add contacts to messenger but they don't show up on the contacts list.

Skype / Messenger Live video call voice quality (fixed)

Hi All,

I am having a few problems with webcam calls with my folks.

I have installed the latest versions of Skype and Windows Live Messenger on both machines but when using either one for webcam video calls their audio and video coming to me is absolutely fine and so is my video to them however my audio to them is delayed, juddery, and robotic/gravelly (as if i have a sore throat). It is the same in both programs.

Zone Alarm on both machines is configured to allow these programs to run as they wish but still the problem persists.

We both have broadband at speeds usually no lower than 3mb.

Any help apreciated.

A:Skype / Messenger Live video call voice quality

skype is heavily dependant on bandwidth. I use it here in Iraq and with phone calls can be garbled if bandwidth is insufficient. However, it would seem in your case, the problem may be firewall related. I would ensure that all your ports are open for skype. I don't recommend zonealarm as it interferes with many programs.

I would like to know if using instant messenger & webcam with Yahoo poses any increased security risks. I think I read somewhere that there are real safety issues with msn messenger due to the nature of the software. I am just up-grading to Windows XP & trying to follow all the security advice from "Prevent infections by making windows more secure..." but there is little point in following such advice if I will jepordise it by using unsecure software.
I will be getting a DSL cable router & using an ntl broadband cable connection.

A:Security concerns using Yahoo! messenger

The biggest threat IM programs pose is the user blindly trusting a message from a "friend" and opening malicious links/files. Do not open anything before asking what it is - it could be malware on your friend's computer sending you stuff.

Other than that, YIM is no bigger threat than any other internet application. Just use common sense.

A:Why does my msn messenger freeze all the time?

Are you running any software firewall? Try disabling that, including the Windows builtin one.

MSN messenger tries to use uPNP for streaming media, it may be that this is causing the failure. Check the status of the uPNP services in Windows and on your router.

After waiting for updates, i finally decided to install windows live messenger, but I have a fairly big problem... I always send messages to my contacts by right clicking on the icon and selecting "Send as", but now it also shows off line contacts. This is a problem, because I have about 350 people on my msn list, friends, colleagues, business partners and many more. And it is nigh on impossible to find anyone who is online. Is there a mod to change this to only show online contacts? I have downloaded msn plus, but it hasn't got the option to change it.



A:Help with windows live messenger.

Uhm.. How about Contacts->Filter contacts->Online contacts only. Present in the vanilla installation of Live.

(The menu bar button is in the upper right corner next to the usual Windows buttons).

Recently everytime i run msger after a few min it just freezes and the only way to close it is via task manager. I have plenty of ram so its not that nor is it my internet connection/speed as im on 20meg and everything else runs fine eg online gaming/IE. The only other thing it affects is my winamp player its freezes that as well until i close msger then winamp starts running again? Any ideas?

In AIM, whenever I or a friend try to warn each other (Don't ask), it always says, "Warning of <Screenname> is not allowed." Can this be fixed? I've tried following all the rules for warning someone in the help file, but it won't work. Anyone else have this problem?

A:AOL Instant Messenger warnings

I've seen this problem if the users are using Trillian. I know you can only warn each other a max of 3 times I think, before you have to wait a while. I've gotten this many times when I try to warn those spammers who try to get you to click on their links. Not sure why, but it happens.
So at least you aren't the only one.

Huh,I'm having problem with Windows Live Messenger.I have a latest version which was downloaded few days ago,and now I can't close on some conversation when I'm in middle of it.I try to sign out of msn,but there's still window in toolbar of conversation I've tried to shut down to.
It won't close even when I'm in middle of conversation and I minimize it.
What to do,should I download new version of messenger?

Thanks forward!

Do you have those stupid kiwee smiley things? Or other free "smiley" add-ons? Nine times out of ten, that's what does it.

The rest of the time it's those stupid ads on the bottom of MSN. There used to be a hack out there to get rid of them, but I've no idea if it still exists.

How the $%$@ do you use firefox with yahoo messenger?

any idea's about changing the browser used by yahoo...
has anyone had a similar problem ?

ta and thanks

Bo ! hopkinso :grinthumb

A:How the $%$£@ do you use firefox with yahoo messenger?

Yahoo! Messenger uses the default browser of your system. It will use Firefox if you set Firefox to be the default browser in Windows. (We are talking about Windows here, right? (And a semi-recent version of YiM like 6.0?)

That goes for normal use. I really can't comment on $%$@ use.

I have been using MSN Messenger since about version 3.0. I have seen it evolve from the ugly low-tech version to 5.0 and 6.0 and become better each time. I currently use MSN Messenger 7.0 Beta, but that does not have all the features and has some holes in it still. I want the official v7.0. I've heard late February, March and this summer as release dates, but does anyone know the official date of release?

My work is asking me to remove MS messenger from their computers. They don't want employees, or the public, to be able to chat. Once it is removed, they will deepfreeze the machines.

The problem is I cannot find it in add/remove programs. I can take the icon off the IE 6.0 bar, but it is very easy to put the icon back on. I see the "messenger" folder under programs, but there is no uninstall option.

If I delte the .dll files in the messenger folder, will messenger stop working? IS there a way to completely uninstall msmessenger?
