    Windows Live Messenger Transfer Speeds

    Hi there,

    Since installing vista, sending and recieving files through windows live
    messenger has been so slow!! And i mean VERY slow like dial up speed even
    though im on 8Meg Broadband.

    My downloads from websites etc are normal, but across messenger is dreadful!!

    Any ideas why this is happening and how i can speed these up?

    Any suggestions would be great,

    Thanks!!

    make sure that your firewall software isn't blocking Live messenger.

    It could also be UAC or the file you are downloading.

    Several posters here who desparately want to get XP back have commented that
    they cannot find Vista in their ADD/Remove Programs. And so it goes.

    Shhh. Andre, the folks here really got torqued when 5456 released to the
    TBP and the folks here didn't get it. Tippy-toe about 'that other build'
    stuff.
