my windows live messenger program is being a Class A douche bag

while i can access everything else online (websites/i tunes store/copious amount of free pr0n) my msn messenger program refuses to sign in siting connection problems as the reason, alternatively it just insists on signing in for 20 minutes

i've tried uninstalling, but then i was unable to install the newest version for reasons i cant figure out

in short outside of buying a new computer im looking for a way to fix this problem, any and all help would be appreciated

I suggest checking the date that's set on your computer. I know this sounds like something dumb that wouldn't cause problems but a while back due to some power outages the year on my computer got changed and that F'd up a bunch of programs, including MSN.

^^ I also had that problem with the time & date. It does screw up MSN if it happens to be wrong.

If that's not the problem, try adding these 2 lines in the HOSTS archives (not sure if that's how you call them in english, but oh well).

65.54.239.80 messenger.hotmail.com
65.54.239.80 dp.msnmessenger.akadns.net

You can find those HOSTS archives following these steps:
Windows XP = C:\WINDOWS\SYSTEM32\DRIVERS\ETC
Windows 2K/NT = C:\WINNT\SYSTEM32\DRIVERS\ETC
Win 98/ME = C:\WINDOWS

Since I added those two lines, my MSN stopped having connection problems.
