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. :)

Not just Vista, but I've had really slow transfers even on XP machines on
the same LAN; at other times files seem to transfer as fast as the network
can handle...as far as I'm concerned, transfering files through Messenger
(MSN or Live) has always been a crapshoot.
