I have a problem with the messenger 4.7.
It start working as soon as I am connected to the Internet
without displaying the messenger icon in the tray. I have
no notification of being online and no option to control
my status. And of course I can't delete it and use only
the MSN messenger.
What is the problem and how can I solve it.

Greetings Tal,

Do you have Norton Antivirus installed? Recent versions of Norton Antivirus added a new
"instant messaging scanning" feature, which can conflict with Messenger and cause this
behavior. To stop it, open Norton Antivirus (Right-click on the Norton Antivirus icon in the
System Tray/Notification Area (by the clock), choose 'Open Norton Antivirus'), click Options,
then Instant Messenger then uncheck MSN Instant Messenger and click OK.
