Ok look....PLEASE stop saying "Its down" we know its down.

State the OS version (optional), if you have patched it (optional), the Messenger client and where you are from. This will help see if its a local problem or worldwide. Thanks :)

When I came back to my pc this evening I was signed out and I couldn't get back on for 5 minutes or so. Just restarted msn and it signed on (although it took longer than usual).

I am tagging this thread too cos I have 2 hacks attempt on WLM about a week or two ago. I thought it's odd. I never get any virus alert from MSN Messenger or anything like it before. Never. Only just recently. I was not chatting. No activity what so ever with WLM but then my A/V says I got a trojans from WLM. Now that I know WLM is not secure, I stay off WLM. Afraid to go online with WLM now lol

When I see everything is fine, I'll check WLM again.

I know microsoft provides windows live for free, but the service has gotten beyong a joke in recent months, theres a company rolling in cash and theres its customers and users who cant allways use its services, Come on M'soft you can do better than this!!!

I use MSN just about every day and It?s the first time I?ve had problems signing in to MSN this year... I would hardly say it?s a joke because there have been technical difficulties for a couple of hours, as you say the service is;)ree ;)

Problems here in Sweden too... Simialr to yesterday's problems... Inmtermittent problems of either logging in or talking to others, and others looking like they're popping in and out of msn occasionally.

I don't think your msn/Windows version matter, this looks like an msn server problem to me, with so many using the official unpatched clients affected.

M'soft use more than one server for its live services all around the world, would they cut them all out? i would have thought they would do them one at a time if it was maintenance.

I've had problems for a few days with Live Messenger, friends have been telling me I'm offline when my status is set to online and I got booted off for an hour last night. I signed in on my N95 8GB this morning and I got a message saying that Messenger will be undergoing maintenance this evening. I'm not complaining though because it is free and it's the first time I've been booted off this year.

your one of the lucky ones then ;)

Ive had trouble for a few months with logging in and undelivered IM's

Hopefully this maintenence will stop those problems and also stop the worms/viruses and spam going around on MSN
