Hi All,

I've had a brief look through the forum but can not find anything.

MSN Messenger 7.0 BETA version - Although it's been doing the same thing on any version...

When I am conversing with somebody on msn, the conversation window gets stuck for about 6 seconds. :mad:

Now in that 6 seconds, the mouse pointer will not appear on messenger. It will not show that anyone is typing a message. Xp does not pick it up as 'Not Responding', but that's almost what the programme is doing.

The main messenger window will not respond either. So it's like it gets stuck. However it recieves messages back from people ok. I am running Xp Home, on a wireless connection, 512Mb broadband connection. However this also happens at home on a dial up. Nobody else who uses the new version of BETA i know has come across this problem.

This is an annoyance rather than a major problem, but with people on messenger

it gets frustrating having to flick up and down the page!!

Once every 15 conversations or so, it works like it should! Very strange.

Any help? :tazz:

There's a possibility that it's interacting with the firewall or a virus scan program.
