I upgraded to SP2 after much frustration and trial and error... now after doing this MSN Messenger still says that I need to upgrade to SP2... WHAT THE [bleep] IS GOING ON?!?!?!?! I finally got everything to work after 4 months of trying and yet my computer is being dumb... Can somebody tell me what is happening?

Also, my MSN Messenger Ver. is 7.5.0322 and I have MSN Messenger PLUS! installed too. My friend has the exact same setup, but he doesn't expecrience any if these problems. He has the same Norton Internet Security as I and also a router with a built-in firewall.

Programming today is a race between software engineers striving to build bigger and better idiot-proof programs, and the Universe trying to produce bigger and better idiots. So far, the Universe is winning.

I can't help with why SP2 is not recognised but can offer two possible solutions. I initially had different problems with 7.5 (it wouldn't save my conversations in MsnMessenger), so I reverted to 7.00, which is still available. I think I got it from the 'old versions' site. The second is to compile a 'slipstream' CD with your XP disc and SP2 combined. This is then used with sfc /scannow to protect windows system files. This is handy anyway should you experience any future problems. How to do this is at:

Hope this helps
