Default Msn Messenger

I have been having some problems lately with msn messenger. It used to work fine on this computer before, but suddenly everything has packed up. I tried to download numerous versions and they all told me different things which were wrong when I tried to log in. The program starts fine, I just can't log in...When I try on one it says my username etc etc is wrong..ok try another, I am not connected to the internet, hmm.. I have been using Trillian for some time now and even that doesn't let it work through it. I was wondering if anyone might know what's going on. I would be very greatful for any advice thanks,

Drew

Haha - move to Yahoo if you want a reasonable service and crappy Instant Messenger

Nah - MSN is practically sorted out now. It only does things like this once in a blue moon and its not worth a rash action like moving to Yahoo.

What r u talking about man, Yahoo IM is WAY better than MSN, u can do so many more things. Its just that msn caught on faster and earlier, or else they wouldnt even be in the running.

Yahoo Instant Messenger was released before Windows Messenger. Microsoft didn't even own Hotmail when YIM was released. AIM was even further back so that is no excuse

What can you do on Yahoo that you can't on MSN then?

I'm using MSN now - and will until I go to bed - so that's that not true

MSN Login works in the background and works with innumerable sites also. Yahoo just allows you to talk.

Yahoo is made by Yahoo

MSN has Viruses? Stop allowing people to send you them and you won't get them

I am not sure which IM was created first, yahoo or msn, but msn was advertised a lot better, obviuosly its from microsoft and they have the money to spend. Yahoo is way more comprehensive. I learned about it in school. You can do networking with yahoo, u cant do that with msn. I know lord k is a big microsft fan, and i am not against anyone, i like microsoft too, but sorry to say that yahoo is the better IM. And no i wouldnt want to move 150 contacts from msn to yahoo either, actually u cant. The only way to do it is for all to move to yahoo.

AIM, as far as I know, was first. Basically because AOL had a browser first. Yahoo was before MSN; basically because Hotmail wasn't Microsoft's when Yahoo had an Instant Messenger. MSN can be used on networking appliances, as well as Phone Integration and PDAs and numerous other items.
