Kia Ora. I start my computer but MSN Messenger dosn't strat in one of the users accounts (who is an admin). What do I do? (Using XP Pro). I try and load the program manually (c:/program files/messenger/messenger.exe) but it still won't load!!

Yours is the opposite of most peoples problems, which are how to stop messenger from loading! There are thousands who would swap!

Perhaps you may need to reload messenger while logged into the Admin account.

It really does sound like a permissions issue, which stops programs from running if not allowed, but why its doing it from the admin login...?? How many admin logins are there??

Had an issue the other day which may be related, there was an admin login that couldnt be removed from a new admin login, folders relating to it couldnt be deleted, neither could it be accessed to log in! Programs loaded under the old login could not be accessed from the new one.
Unsolved as yet.
