Hi!

Whenever I try to "Sign in" and open Windows Messenger (Version 4.7) on
my computer which has Windows XP, I get the following loop:
1. Up comes a window with a message saying, "A newer version is
availeable...
2. Download latest version
3. A Security warning window shows ref. Hotfix KB887472
4. Then its click here to sign in.
5. The "Signing in" process starts again and back to number 1 again.

I am unable to use a Webcam because of this problem.
Can anyone please help!

Greetings,

Could you click the Help menu, then About, and indicate which version you're using (like
4.7.0204)?

Regardless, you can try downloading the latest from here:
