Hi guys,

I have an issue to do with MSN Messenger, and not sure if any of you can help.

basically, when I accept peoples webcams, my MSN freezes up, and i have to manutally terminate it (With the Not Responding "End Now").

Did this before, but i somehow managed to sort it... but cant remember how!

Now its doing it again, had two people test it for me, one of which webcam worked fine the other week with.

I'm on Windows XP, and have 4gb of DDR2 RAM (I know XP only supports around 3 gig), and a AMD X2 3800 CPU. So dont think its m yspecs thats causing the problem?

Tried a re-install of MSN as well.

Did it come with additional software? Try in/reinstalling those and update all drivers.

Also try it on another computer.
Do other webcams work?
