MSN Messenger 7.5 & Avast 4.7 Home Edition
« on: April 25, 2006, 02:11:58 PM »
Hi,
Not sure if anyone can help, but i am trying (have been for a while now) to logon to msn messenger using MSN Messenger 7.5 & Avast 4.7 Home Edition.

The error message is "msn has made several attempts - your firewall may be blocking Messenger from connecting to this service.  Please review your firewall settings. See retailers instructions."

I don't think i have a firewall (but have a NB1300 running?) but are there any settings in Avast I can change. -I tried the IM tick box thingy as per previous forum messages...to no avail. Any ideas would be muchly appreciated ???

Thanks.

Welcome to the forums, 2424nb.    :)

What is the OS of your computer?

You might try a search on your computer for ... firewall ... to see if you actually have one that is blocking MSN Messenger.
