When msn is closed its fine. For some reason this msn requires a lot of power.

So remove msn?

Did the windows experience index change recently or something because 3.5 is quite low...

Is it possible to install the previous version without doing all the extra steps? Im running windows 7.

So many processes! I have 9 running and one of them is taskmanager

I like how I'm not the only one to refer to messenger as msn still. Man my childhood with msn was lovely, just can't forget the name msn messenger..

P.S. The newest msn sucks, the beta profiley facebook wannabe crap. Install the old normal one.

The latest version is slow, I found out after alot of messing around its one of the adverts from the bottom loading they somehow have messed it up, just get a program to remove the adverising, it seems to have done the trick, you can always downgrade to 8.5 as well as the new msn sucks.

Absolute rubbish.



Have to agree, the animations are nice but it seems to take a lot longer to load up

Another person who had problems with Live Messenger 2011 here. As in peoples cases in this thread, it ran really really slowly. Quick downgrade to Live Messenger 2009 and all was fine again. They have seriously cocked up on 2011

Download 2009 @ windows-live-messenger.en.softonic.com/

I had to double check the post date on this, surely it should be 5 years ago?
