This is a temporary solution for (most) XP Users.
– Click on Start
– Click on My Computer
– Open Local Disk (C:)
– Open Program Files
– Open the folder called "Messenger"
– Right Click on (green men) "msmsgs"
– Select "Send To" then "Desktop (create shortcut)"
– Close all Windows
– Sign in using the Shortcut
It is an older version of Messenger (126.96.36.19901) that came pre-installed
with my XP (all of them I think?) and still works.
To the WLM Team:
**DON’T** disable the Older One from the Servers, it is the only hope we have!
Not all features like "Send a File" work, but if you have lost your Contact
List or can’t Sign In it is a small price to pay until WLM is sorted out.
If your’s works please post with the Version Number. I’m not sure if Vista
has a pre-installed Old Messenger, would be nice if someone looked for it or
found a download on Google and tried it, post back if it works on Vista.

I still have not heard about my Job Application? Does the above prove my
worth? (insert giggling).
