Never had MSN problems, and I'm sticking with it.

I haven't tried downloading the whole lot of it, I'm trying now, thanks.

Same two error messages when I try to download all of it.

A third party service is an option but I just purchased a new computer, I'd like the damn thing to work properly, otherwise I could have stuck with my old one.

I did that and now get a new error message (80040154) because the service is temporarily unavailable. This is what I get when I look up how to fix it:

  • In Windows XP, click Start, click Run, type cmd, and then press ENTER.

    — or —

    In Windows Vista, click Start, click in the Start Search box, and then type command prompt. Under Programs, right-click Command Prompt, and then click Run as administrator.
  • Type %windir%\system32\regsvr32 %windir%\system32\msxml3.dll, and then press ENTER.
  • Type exit, and then press ENTER.
Can I do either in Windows 7? Thanks.

Make sure your firewall or antivirus/antispyware programs are not blocking it. Set Windows Defender to disabled in Services, if it's running.

No dice on the firewall or Defender.

If you can't get MSN working, try Pidgin - that should do it and it supports virtually everything.

Agreed, but MSN is tied into your system when you install it - probably why it won't work now.
