I need help from a more experienced "geek" or guru than I. Both of these IM's Yahoo 8.1.0.421 (module 8.0.0.1) Myspace IM 1.0.745.0 spontaneously restart themselves. I run Windows Vista on an HP Pavillon Slimline S3223W. I have Hughesnet. There are never any weather issues when this happens, nor do I have any satellite system problems (that I know of anyway) when this happens. This has just started happening within the last week or so. I have run virus scans nothing was found. I had not changed anything in my system before this happened. I am stumped as this has never happened. I am new to Vista, so I don't even know if thats a factor Please help!!!!

I chat with yahoo messenger and have cam also but using XP - if you download paltalk (www.paltalk.com) then can chat with Vista

I think the above is the answer too. A pain, but required. It may be worth checking to see if there is a Vista upgrade for each program. Often many other people will have had the same problem as you and drive Myspace to come up with a fix. So far, Vista has caused more problems than it has solved and it will take a while before everyone upgrades to new hardware and software produced specifically for Vista and not just an upgrade from XP. Good luck.
