    So randomly when I log into Windows Live Messenger it randomly decided to shut my whole internet down. I have to unplug my router and plug it back in and wait about a minute or two before it's back up. Anyone know what's going on?

    Are you using any anti-viruses? A friend of mine had Norton installed and had the same issue. I got rid of that for him and gave him Avast instead and that seems to have cured the problem.

    I've never had that problem, and i've been using norton for 3 years now.

    Try reinstalling it, or use a different program.

    Don't use MSN or Live Messenger, use something web-based like eBuddy or meebo. It's easier and works like a charm.
