msn.exe problems RRS feed

  • Question

  • I think I have a virus that only affects msn.exe.   I have run all antivirus and spyware programs I can think of....all programs run fine except for msn.exe.  as soon as I start it up it gradually begins to eat virtual memory and later even cpu until the entire system goes to a crawl.  Does not happen when I am logged on through internet explorer though.  any suggestions on how to fix this?

  • There is probably something broken in your MSN browser. To get help with MSN products - http://support.msn.com/default.aspx?wa=wsignin1.0

    This is exactly my issue.  It would be nice if Microsoft actually posted solutions rather than links to it's premium support line. 

     

     

    Typical Microsoft,  I'm a fool for thinking I'd actually find a fix.

     

     

    Thanks for nothing MS.

  • If you are using MSN Explorer, you will need to contact MSN Support. This forum is for discussion of Windows Live OneCare. It is hosted by Microsoft, but it is a peer to peer discussion, meaning users helping other users. The moderators are volunteers.

    Furthermore, if you are an MSN subscriber, you have access to free support. If you are using an older version of MSN Explorer, I'd recommend switching to Internet Explorer as the older versions of MSN Explorer are no longer supported.
