Try downloading Windows Messenger 5.0 to see if you can connect to that. If
not, then you may want to go with a version of MSN Messenger that is not a
beta version. The beta version may be causing the problem.
Also, if you have a firewall on your PC, try disabling it and then connect
to Windows/MSN Messenger to see if it stays connected that way. If it does,
then you know the firewall is causing the problem, and you'll need to
configure the firewall to allow Windows/MSN Messenger to pass through it.
