Post 3+ Months Ago

I have MSN messenger and AOL IM. They used to work properly and when I would hit the "send" button, the message would be sent right away. Now, for some reason, neither the AOL IM or the MSN IM works like that. When I hit the "send" button, there is a four to five second pause and the screen freezes up before the message is sent. I have uninstalled and reinstalled both programs more than once. I have defraged, run spyware, and anti-virus checks, still nothing? Can someone help? Thank you

Hey thanks for the info, I have been checking out that site. However, I dout that is the problem. The messengers use to work great, I had zero problems with them, now all the sudden, they run like garbage. Really strange?

I've just got this problem as well - any ideas yet? Like you say, definately not a bandwidth problem, just locks up every time I click send or open a new msn window :(

*watch your mouth* hell I'm good with google sometimes :)

Taken from LSPĀ“s website:

This type of software is known as a Layered Service Provider or LSP, a piece of software that can be inserted into the Windows TCP/IP handler like a link in a chain. Unfortunately, this type of software is sometimes quietly installed by unrelated software such as file-sharing programs, sneaking onto a system unannounced. In fact, in many cases, the user does not know of its existance until something goes wrong, and he/she can no longer access Web sites. Common offenders include New.net* (NEWDOTNET) and WebHancer*, which are often bundled with file-sharing utilities, DVD player software, and other free downloads. LSP-Fix repairs the Winsock LSP chain by removing the entries left behind when LSP software is removed by hand (or when errors in the software itself break the LSP chain), and removing any gaps in the chain.....

I am pretty much in agreement with seb on his offered solution. I'd be about in the 90% sure range that's probably the best educated guess on the prob.

I got exactly the same problem, had it for about a month or two now. I know a few people who got it too, and I found this site through google too =P I'll give the fix a bash when I get home in about an hour, and I'll let you guys know how it went.

Thanks for the info =P

I had the same problem a little while ago. Basically, I was typing at normal speed, then I would press enter and it would freeze and take about 3 or 4 seconds before the message was actually sent. I searched endless hours on the internet hoping to find a solution to my problem to no avail, as they were all advanced answers and they didn't seem to be helping anyone. So fed up with this, one day I was sitting there and decided to customise my MSN a bit, so I changed my display picture. Next thing, I got a MSN message from my friend. I thought "Oh great, now I'm going to have to wait forever for my messages to send again." So I typed my message, hit enter, and it sent instantly. I found out that changing the picture actually got rid of the lag. It also applies when you change the name as well. I don't know why this should affect the speed the message sends at, but it does, and it really helped with my problem! You should try it with yours too.

Hope this helps! xx
