I had a problem yesterday with Firefox or IE not opening up and Microsoft Outlook wouldnt work either and I received a message indicating that "program currently being used by another application. I immediately did a "CNTRL>ALT>DELETE" and noticed that under applications that "msnmsgr> was running even though down on my taskbar on right hand side that Msn Messsenger was on standby with an "X" over it. I immediately exited the application and then my browsers and email worked correctly. However I wondered why this was happening because it never interferred before. If you require any more information please advise.

Regards
