What version are you using?

P.S.: Do you actually think ranting about Bill Gates will help?

Yeah, we all rant about good ol' Bill :)  (i.e. why can't I be him?)

Can you take a screenshot of the issue? I'd love to see what you're
seeing... to do this, press the Print Screen button on your keyboard ("Prnt
Scrn"), click Start Menu --> Programs --> Accessories --> and click on
Paint. In Paint, click the Edit menu and press Paste. This should paste a
copy of your screen and the issue right there. Save the file and email it to
me or post it here, whichever you prefer.

Now it wont let me snd e-mail? so here is the one i tryed to send you!!!!!

Hi Micheal,

I hope you recieve this e-mail.

I tryed to paint edit and paste but cant find paint? I am running the new
sony pcv-v1/G it has xp software installed as standard.

The comp fires up fine and did with the old messenger. Now with the new one
the comp starts up fine the as soon as messenger try's to start it seems to
change the screen resolution to 640 pixels and coulor quality to low ( 8bit ).
I then have to go into settings to change it all back to normal!

Mate this has had me and my freiends baffled.. we have tryed lots of
different things but with no joy, there seems to be a setting that was
downloaded with the new version of messenger that like's to change my screen
settings.

I bet some programmer at messenger is having a great laugh at my expence!

Anyway would appreciate your or your friends help on this matter..


Yours Hoping

Muggs

Greetings,

It sounds like you may have compatibility modes engaged for MSN Messenger. To check this,
click Start, then Run, type:
"%programfiles%\msn messenger"
and click OK.

Right-click the msnmsgr.exe icon, choose Properties and then click the Compatibility tab.
Under the Display settings group make sure nothing is selected and then click OK.
