OT: trouble installing/downloading MSN IM HELP!

Postby kevox » Fri Aug 27, 2004 1:28 am

http://messenger.msn.com/Download/default.aspx
I just reformatted the hard drive and therefore lost MSN IM....my problem is that when I go to msnim.com and "download" IM it doesn't do a thing!

I went to the above link...and since I already have an email address I clicked on "go" on the right....then it brings me to this screen....
http://messenger.msn.com/download/downloadx.aspx

Notice the "Note: If download does not start, click here to download manually, then click Run" ....well it doesn't download a thing, so I click that link....and it merely brings me back to the previous link!!! And there is no "Run" button. Can somebody plz help me install MSN IM....Windows Messenger sux!!:cwm15:

The first link worked for me. Did you click yes on the pop-up box that says "Always trust Microsoft...." ? If you don't click yes, it won't work.

And that second link made my computer hang. Might be something wrong with that second page.
