MSN Messenger 6.2 seems to be causing me problems, what should I do?

I’ve seen a handful of reports of people experiencing slowdowns and
other problems after they’ve upgraded to MSN Messenger 6.2.

The Ask Marvin! Forums has two interesting items: this thread describes
a common slowdown and a solution

IMPORTANT: be sure to check MSN’s own MSN Network Status page. Quite often if you’re having a problem, it’s not you – it’s the service. And that’s the page to check for the latest information.

  11. I can run yahoo messenger with voice just fine. MSN messenger with voice won’t work, but MSN shows a connection for voice made and the little green thingy for the mic level shows as I speak. I”ve bypassed the router, firewall, and anti-virus. Any ideas? Oh yeah, UPNP is installed.

  17. …same as everyone MSN messenger 6.2 simply does’t work!!! every time I try logging in it displays a message “sorry, we could not sign you because the sign in name you entered does not exit or password is incorrect. If you have forgotten your password…reset it….error code 0x81000303” I already have a working hotmail account for long. I have already tried changing password…same message keeps coming. even disabling my firewall doesn’t help, I have tried reinstalling it many time…but it simply doesn’t work. The earlier version used to just run fine…I am regretting my decission to upgrade to the newer version!! any clues…why its behaving like this..

  18. MY MESSENGER FIX:

    I have had the same problem with messenger. Havent been able to use messenger for the past 2 months. Today I FINALLY solved it. I use ZoneAlarm and I had a feeling it was ZoneAlarm causing the problem. What I did was..tried to open MSN Messenger (as usual, got the error message) Opened up Zone Alarm “Alerts & Logs”–“log viewer”. There was an alert at the time I had tried to open Messenger.

    If you have ZoneAlarm this is what you do:

    1. Try to open Msn Messenger (just to record alert on ZA)

    2. Open Zone Alarm—> “Alerts & Logs”—> “log viewer”.

    3. On the “Log Viewer” page, click on (to highlight) the alert you just got when you tried to open messenger. Bottom right of the page, click on “add to zone”…you will have 2 choices “trusted” or “blocked”…..choose “trusted”

    After I did this, Opened messenger with NO problem!! Hope this helps

  19. I had the problem of MSN signing in and out by itself. There was also another problem that OFFICE 2003 (OUTLOOK 2003) would not download emails properly or would download email it had already downloaded and get stuck at a certain point.

    ENVIRONMENT : WINDOWS XP HOME
    LAPTOP PC
    OFFICE 2003
    CONNECTION : DSL (British Telecom)
    Linksys G3 Wireless router
    INTEL PRO Wireless LAN 2100 3A Mini PCI

    PROBLEM DESCRIPTION : Email does not download properly and/or stops downloading at various points but never downloads completely.

    ANALYSIS : SMTP log analysis indicated that the connection between the server and the client dropped off regularly and was not stable
    MSN traffic analysis showed the same thing.

    SOLUTION : The problem was deemed to be the actual wireless connection. Windows XP can control your wireless connection through zero configuration. This causes the ip to change in response to changes on the network. It also is apparently quite unstable. Unchecking the Use Windows to configure my wireless connection settings checkbox, and forcing the LAN card to manage the connection solved both problems.

  22. Over the past few years I have been connecting to my Messenger account through AOL but recently we installed a ADSL modem with a built in wireless router and this is not giving me access to my messenger Account.

    I would like to know if anyone else on AOL has had this problem and if they were able to rectify it.

    I have tried to find a solution on help lines which suggest I change my proxy settings but this has had no effect.

    Some help and advice would be much appreciated.

  37. For some reason, the “sign in” dialogue box of MSN Messenger 6.2 is appearing with “oblongs” where the word “sign in” should be? I haven’t removed any fonts, so can’t undertand why this has happened.

    If you are somewhere that locks messenger go to the link.
    To see if you have the same prob as me,(xp) go task manger select processes tab the in task manger tool bar select and select colums, now tick PID (you should have a new column, to see what is running with ip addresses etc use command prompt type netstat -no.
    now just match what is on command prompt with task manager (processor)

  63. If you get the error 0x81000306, it usually means one of the following:
    – the MSN servers are down (as they have been this evening, or at least the ones I use for Messenger);
    – you have a firewall or proxy prevented access… see your system administrator (this usually happens at work or school)

    I have 6.2, but it will not work, after a few minutes (maybe even less) of being signed on it just shuts itself down, the icon still appears in the bottom right hand tray, until i move mouse over it then dissappears!!

    I have to use version 4.7, and am worried that if i delete this version (4.7) and 6.2 does still not work then i will not be able to use anything.

    I hope there is a cure for this problem.

    It is making me very sick 🙁

  71. Here’s a fun one for you.
    My MSN Messenger Version 6.2.0137 is doing the following. After a fresh reboot, when I try to sign into MSN using my work account at work, it will sign in with no errors, but after about 10 seconds, Messenger just closes completely. I can re-open messenger and try logging back in but it just does the same thing after about 10 seconds.
    If I then log in with a different account, like my personal account, it logs in just fine and stays open. If I then sign out, and log back in with my work account, it will stay logged in just fine. I’ve tried reinstalling, repairing, complete uninstall and reinstall, and nothing so far has worked. thanks for the help 😉

  101. I know why msn doesnt run! Its shdoclc.dll in C:/windows/system/shdoclc.dll !!!

    It pisses me off 2. Msn 6.2 doesnt work. I havent figured out how to repair it yet but reinstalling it doesnt work. Theres no way to replace the god-damn shdoclc.dll file becuase its always in use. Right now im looking for a way to repair it but the last 3 times ive tried have failed. shdoclc.dll May not be the same problem as most of you but if your problem is when you cant sign in on msn messenger or at hotmail its definetly shdoclc.dll!

  103. Ok. The people who say that they can log in but only for 5 mins or those who say it only shows half your friends list then crashes or stuff like that isnt the same problem as the one i post just above this one. If it says that you have an incorrect password or trouble shooting but it all works on any other computer and that you cant log in at hotmail.com to see your mail its all cuz of a file called shdoclc.dll being currupt becuase you probably got a parasite from kazaa. Kazaa is full of parasites that create problems with dlls. Try going to control panel and pressing on add/remove programs. go to Internet Explorer program then click the Install button. It may ask you for a path to the installation program. Its in c:/programfiles/Internetexplorer/Setup/Setup.exe ok. Try that if it doesnt work then try and download a program that can repair dlls. i suggest PcMightyMax or PC Rescue.

    Hope that’ll help!

    Reply
  104. OK i forgot to add this. TO GET RID OF PARASITES IF YOU HAVE ONE. You can pay money to get rid of it OR you can…….

    Get your Windows 98 or 2000 or whatever disk. Run it. Do a Systems repair. It will Re-install everything thats in windows/system. To do a systems repair just basicly keep pressing yes to all the things you think got to do with repairing it. ( I have no idea how i did it i just kept doing yes ) Once the repair starts itll be about 30 minutes to wait until its done. when its done your computer will restart. Now the parasites should be gone. This also could repair shdoclc.dll but it didnt for me so i dont know…

  147. i think the error code 0x81000306 is a problem with the msn server, not with my or anyones computer. check the msn status pages, links are on this page. windows messenger wont work cos it uses the same thing, but WM sucks anyway (:
    when it comes up with the error you can click for the troubleshooter, this is an automatic thing that comes up for most msn errors and doesnt necessarily mean this problem is at your end.
    wait for a while and it’l come back, I wouldnt worry cos with the error code 0x81000306, if msn’s down for you it will most likely be down for your contacts as well so your not missing out on chatting!!

  171. Ok, here’s a solution for those of you running Norton Internet Security 2005 who are having troubles signing on to MSN messenger.
    1.) Go into Norton Internet Security Firewall
    2.) Go into “Programs”
    3.) Then find “MSN Messenger” in the list of programs
    4.) Left click the Internet Access for MSN messenger
    5.) Choose “Custom”
    6.) Click the MSN Messenger info in the Description box
    7.) Choose “Modify”
    8.) Choose “Permit”
    9.) Hit OK
    10.) Make sure the box is toggled next to the MSN messenger
    11.) Hit OK again
    12.) Hit OK again

    That should fix the strange BLOCK setting that seems to be downloading with the new MSN messenger in Norton Internet Security.

    Hope this helps!!! Happy chatting!

  177. Hi folks! All those having difficulties signing in, after mandatory download of Messenger 6.20205, I may have a work around.
    Go to Control Panel and double click on Add/Remove Program icon. Scroll down till you see Messenger 6.2 and highlight it. Then click remove button. A window will open with two options. Click on the “Repair Messenger” options and wait till the utility runs its course. Then click Finish. Then go to Programs on Start menu and click on Messenger 6.2 and you would be able to sign in. Only drawback is you must do this everytime you shutdown and reboot. This should hold you till Gate’s boys fix the problem.

  178. I have Windows 2000 Adv Server installed in my PC and MSN messenger 6.2 is not letting me sign in (tried reinstalling, but didn’t work). Error messages: “There was a problem connecting you to MSN Messenger. Click Troubleshoot for help with this problem. Error Code: 0x81000370″ OR ” We were unable to sign you in to .NET Messenger Service, possibly because of a problem with service or with your Internet Connection. Please make sure that you are connected to the Internet. 0x81000301. Click the Help button to check the current service status.”
    I could however use other messenger services(eg. Yahoo) without any problem.
    My PC is in a network and every other computers could sign in to MSN but not this one. HELP!

  182. I’m having a problem with MSN as well. It’s not so much a dire issue as it is annoying. I find that when my account is logged off/logged back on, I have all these extra groups that existed months ago, and one person who was moved from these groups is now in all of them. If I delete the contacts and the extra groups, they’re gone for the time being, but as soon as my account logs back in, they’re there again!

    Ack! What to do?

  184. Ever since I installed MSN Messenger 6.2, I have had a problem with my Outlook Import/Export function. When I select the Import/Export function under the File menu, all I get is a box that offers an Export function only and none of the numerous other options that are normally available in a drop down menu.

    Any other PC users out there experiencing the same glitch?

  185. since i was forced to download 6.2 to continue using my msn premimum service, I have not been able to use the service. I have been on the phone with msn and qwest my dsl provider where all I have gotten is a bunch of B.S.. while discussing with a computer tech , he told me that microsoft discontinued using DOS when they developed windows xp. said the purpose was to corner the market and force people to buy the up dated versions of windows. 6.2 is not working on older versions of windows because they operate on DOS.
    My membership with msn is going to end unless they discontinue the garbage.
    I have not been able to use my email account since and don’t dare to use msn because the messenger tries to load and shuts down my pc.

  186. MSN, and MSN Instant Messenger (which are two DIFFERENT things) have nothing to do with DOS. Never did. DOS was never a part of Windows NT, Windows 2000 and Windows XP. The whole DOS thing here is a red herring.

  191. I have been forced to upgrade MSN Messenger from 6.2.0137 to 6.2.0205 – ok so far. Then I can get signed in no problem. However when I then reboot my PC, MSN Messenger then reverts to 6.2.0137.

    I have tried uninstalling MSN Messenger 6.2.0137, clearing out all the temporary files, etc, but to no avail. Can someone please advise what is happening here and how to resolve this problem?

  192. It is a waste of space, despite reading and trying every well-meaning solution MSN 6.2 is a load of crap. It just doesn’t work, full stop.

    Crap video, crap audio connection, signs me out every 5 mins, then decides to sign me back in despite the fact I don’t have the auto sign in option enabled.

    I give up, I tried screwing around with my router, my Norton Antivirus, Windows firewall….nothing works…..MSN Messenger can go to hell.

  196. Dear Leo,

    Whenever I open Outlook Express 6.0 to access my Hotmail, my MSN Messenger 6.2 icon automatically appears in my System Tray. However, when I attempt to exit MSN Messenger 6.2 from the System Tray,I receive the following message:

    “There are other applications currently using features provided by MSN Messenger. You must close these before you can exit MSN Messenger. These applications may include Outlook, Outlook Express, MSN, MSN Explorer, Internet Explorer, and threedegrees.”

    Once I close Outlook Express 6.0, then I am able to exit the MSN Messenger 6.2 icon from the System Tray. However, is there a method by which I can disconnect MSN Messenger 6.2 from Outlook Express 6.0–but without uninstalling MSN Messenger 6.2 completely–so that it does not appear in the System Tray every time I run Outlook Express 6.0?

    My System Resources run in the red whenever I open Outlook Express and MSN Messenger appears at the same time.

    Thanks so very much, in advance, for your expertise, efforts, and time on my behalf!

    Sincerely,

    Glenn

    I am having a bit of trouble file sharing over MSN.I am unable to send or recieve files for some reason, each time i have tried i get the message, you have failed to recieve file from whoever sends and my contacts get the same when i try to send one.

  198. I have the same problem and I now I can sign in to MSN Mesenger.
    1) If you have Sygate Personal Firewall installed (wheter it is active or not), you MUST uninstalled it, then you can sign in to MSN Mesenger (after you update to v6.2.0205).
    2) For “roman”, if you use Lavasoft “Ad-Watch” please unload it or put it on monitoring off status before you install MSN Mesenger.
    I hope it will help, enjoy….

  202. I’ve recently solved a customers problem with MSN Messenger 6.2. There seems to be a compatibility issue of MSN Messenger 6.2 with the OS. So if 6.2 works fine with one of the OS’s it might not work with the other OS versions.

    The best way to solve this problems is to uninstall MSN Messenger 6.2 and install the MSN Messenger 5 or 5.1. It works perfectly fine, even with MS-Exchange Instant Messaging System.

    Thanks.

I can see that i have new email messages, but cannot click on them or anything else on the page. When i access my account from the hotmail website, everything is fine.
