    Recently MSN Messenger seems to randomly exit. I'll be on it, then all of a sudden the program just closes. The icon remains in the taskbar until I move the mouse over it. Also, after I log on, when I start the first conversation of the session, the Windows Messenger 5.0 installation starts. I've tried contacting the people at Microsoft, but they didn't help at all.

    I'm sorry I can't offer any suggestions as I can't even get MSN messenger to connect; however, I do wonder if you have tried completely uninstalling it and reinstalling.

    MSN messenger support wasn't very helpful in my case either.

    Good Luck! :)

    I've tried uninstalling both MSN Messenger and Windows Messenger, but no luck for me. They have some of the worst tech support ever. I've asked for help several times on different matters, and their advice is always the same. Uninstall, reinstall, give up. And I thought I'd mention I'm on XP Professional, and it's MSN 7.0 BETA, but I never had this problem until last week. It started the day I downloaded Firefox, would this have anything to do with it?
