I have a computer running XP (actually its somebody else's) that runs fine for a while. But then all of a sudden, ALL of the messaging programs: MSN, Yahoo, AIM, Skype, and any others just stop working. The computer can recieve IM's sent to it, but it cannot send any at all. If anybody would have any kind of insight into this problem your input would be GREATLY appreciated.

Hello,

The more information you can provide will help us to better be able to assist with your problem. A few questions to clarify your setup and situation:
1) How does your computer connect to the internet? Do you go through a router of any sort or are is there more than one computer connecting to the internet?
2) Have you installed any new programs, windows updates or hardware recently?
3) Are you having any problems with other programs using the internet connection like web browsers?

Cheers,
Tom
