Default Need some help

Hello all, newbie to the forums is requesting some help. Ok so i guess ill go into the problem details. First off it is a laptop that i am having problems with and I am running windows vista on it. Now the problem that I have and have been having for a while is that every so often i get an "invalid ip address" error on my windows live messenger. The repair always fails and i end up having to use the system restore to fix it. Last night I updated a program and it created a restore point, so today when i got the error i went back to last night's restore point. It worked for about a minute or two then gave me the error again. I am using altell's wireless internet card but i have had this problem since before then.Any help would be appreciated, thank you.

I don't think you need to be doing a restore to get it to work again.
try adjusting the settings for the firewall first. it might be blocking your connection.
