I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/download.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

When I view the Reliability history in Control Panel -> Security and Maintenance, I usually find a significant number of incidents involving Microsoft.Messaging_8wekyb3d8bbwe!ppleae38af2e007f4358a809ac99a64a67c1 no longer working. (I think the record was 14.) Is that something I need to be concerned about?

When I try to do some basis steps on Outlook like send a message or delete an old message, I get this popup "The messaging interface has returned an unknown error.

Many thanks, David

A:Microsoft Outlook - Messaging Interface

Hi penguin88,What version of Outlook are you using?I've found several references to this error which might help.If you have an older version of Outlook, this might help: See if there's something called TaskPad in Page Setup. If so, try unchecking it.If that's not something that will work, try disabling the addins by going to Tools > Options > Other tab > Advanced OptionsClick on the Addin Manager button. Remove any reference to Google desktop. (or any other addin not native to Outlook) Click ok.Do the same for the Com-Add-ins button.Microsoft also has a patch, but I'm not sure it applies in your case and it's only for the specific symptoms it describes.http://support.microsoft.com/kb/275186Did any of this help?Zllio

I've been trying out various Metro apps, and have more or less got them working except for Messaging. I seem to have successfully linked it to Facebook (at least I signed up for Windows Live/Facebook integration), but whenever I start Messaging I get a brief message that "Microsoft is unavailable" and no messages/statuses appear. That is, except for some blurbs from the Windows Live Messaging team. Down at the bottom it shows "Connected to" and a small Facebook icon. However none of my friends show up. It's possible, but rather unlikely, that none of them are online.

So has anyone else managed to get Messaging working today (or yesterday, for that matter?)

The messaging app seems to work for me and shows the last conversation I had also.

I was wondering if there was any programs or a way of sending messesges to people over the internet when you only have their ip address?

thnx

A:ip messaging

I wonder why you should want to do this because the number of IP addresses if limited, and that's the reason why a lot of people don't have a fixed IP address. (it will cost you)
Your ISP allocates a dynamic IPA when you log on and even when you stay on-line 24h/24h your IP will probably change over the time.
It is possible to directly address an IPA but I'm not inclined to look this up for the reasons I mentioned.

Hi,

I am new to the XP operating system and having so trouble finding things that I had with Win98 like the INBOX!!
Where in the heck is it and how do I get in to Windows Messaging? Thanks
 

A:Messaging

What program were you using to access the Inbox in 98? Did you just double-click on the Inbox icon on your desktop? If so are you on a network, as that was the MS Exchange client. That program no longer exists any more in that form.

To access email now you can use either Outlook Express which is always installed as part of Windows, or you can install your own email program. There are loads to choose from including Outlook itself, or one from MS's competitors like Netscape or Opera.

A:Windows 8 Messaging

If you've linked your accounts, it's linked. You can always unlink your FB account and not use your live account, but if you want messaging but no messages, currently you don't really have many options. You can stop it from running in the background by changing permissions from the settings charm, but that won't stop people from being able to contact you when it's open.

Hey Everbody,

Sometimes I will be in a game or doing nothing and a windows messaging program box pops up with a advertisement in it. I traced the program down and found out its called CSRSS.EXE. I tried to end the process but it says its a vital windows process, then I traced its tree down and found it was related to CSRSRV.DLL. If I stop the program from running will it damage my windows 2k? and if not do you think I can hex edit the exe and the dll to make it stop functioning?

ps. hopefully posted this in the right section, because its an internet orientated application.

Any help you can offer would be appreciated,

I'm curious, since I never had a mobile device that used text messaging...I keep seeing ads for various charities asking for donations, and they say text "Haiti for xxxxx". How does one do that, when he only has email?

A:Text Messaging

You can send an SMS message to a cell phone via email. Most cell phone providers have a special email address or domain that you can send a message to. This then gets forwarded as a text message to the cell phone. E.g. with Verizon in the U.S. (IIRC), you can email ##########@vtext.com, where "##########" has to be replaced with the 10 digit cellular number, and that message will get sent as a text message to that phone. Other carriers also probably have some equivalent.

Baffled with this. Older version of Yahoo Messeger (IM) let you send a "text" message to people that used certain carriers. Newer versions call it "SMS" short message service.
I send text to friend via my cell and he receives it as normal cell to cell text
I send him "sms" via Yahoo messneger and he receives it and it shows my my yahoo id
The problem or question is when he recieves it he has to go to different area of his cell to read the ones sent from IM. It comes in from web or something? Then he replies to me and sometimes I get it sometimes not. Never know where the replies are some I get in IM and some I don't.

Last night I went to my yahoo mail which I never use. Occassionally just drop in there to empty bulk folder and the mail in general. What do you know. All the messages I did not receive , 80 of them, are in my yahoo mail.

Anyone know why some will go into my email and sometimes it is in my IM where it should be? Is there something I need to tell him on doing this right?

Hi
A while ago, I received sinister private messages through my trip advisor account. The odd thing is though, the messages were received showing times between 7.30 pm and 8.30pm then suddenly changed to between 10.30pm and 11.30pm. Why would this happen? Could they have changed it so I didn't know what time zone they were in?
I know this sounds like an odd question, but I have valid reasons for asking.

A:Anyone know anything about private messaging

I don't think that would be the case. It sounds like its a bot sending the messages if it's spam (like advertisements). If that is the case, or if it's someone sending nasty messages, then check this page out if its from 1 person.

It depends what messaging service you are talking about. If it is an instant messenger, you will need to look through the privacy options to turn off invitations.

If it is the spam-like message that pops up from the Windows Net Send messenger, go to Control Panel, Services, and double-click the Messenger Service, disable it, and stop it.
