Question MSN Messenger

Hey guys/girls,

well my friend is having a bit of problems with her msn messenger, whenever she signs out...and goes to get a drink or sumthing...when she comes back it signs in...yes she has the newest version of messenger as well.

would anyone know what the problem is ?? the only thing i could think of is...to untick the little box saying sign me in automaticly but leaving the remember username and password ticked

thanks for the help

wireless is like a cellphone

the internet is connecting through an antenna, and if you have something interfering, such as a 2.4 ghz wireless telephone, it will mess up badly.

i have two 5.8 ghz telephones, and even i have wireless problems.

Also when she steps away for a drink or whatever she can just set her status to "busy" or "Be right back"...
