View Full Version : Msn Messenger Wont Sign In..

09-18-2005, 07:27 PM
Ok, i normally use msn messenger 7 and it works perfectly.

I've tried 3 times on seperate occasions to try the latest one 7.5

It installs fine etc but when i try to sign in it always says

"the service is too busy, try again later"

Soon as i switch back to 7 it all works again.

Any idea what the problem is?

Don't think this has been posted before, i had a quick look.

thanks for any help

You have to reinstall, problem with a file.

try uninstalling MSN 7.0 first...

FYI, 7.0 > 7.5 no bumpping glitch...

Stay with 7.0 then. 7.5 will update itself when it HAS to.

Zelink: When you install msn 7.5 it uninstalls 7 first i think

I've just uinstalled it so i had no msn messenger on my computer (expect windows messenger) and reinstalling but still same problem

thanks for fast reply..

What type of computer (eg 98 XP)? My friend had 98 and 7.5 never worked, he bought a new computer with windows XP and it worked fine.

it may just be a bug in the version. OR your pcs firewall is blocking it from connecting.

Try going to your control panel, then to add and remove programs and click on messenger and click remove, then it should take your to a screen that asks you if you would like to remove this program or repair it, click repair. This works for me sometimes.
