    I have had my Tiger for over a year. MSN Mssngr has always run fine. Lately, when I launch it at start up, it tells me "an error ocurred"

    It wants me to click cancel or OK to try again.

    I click okay as I am always able to surf even when the error ocurrs, and it gets me to the sign in screen like I did not type my password or uername but all the data is there, I click sign in and it finally goes.

    I delet MSN Mssngr and reinstall and same result. It always worked fine prior to a month or two ago.

    The only weird peice, is in the past, if I delete and reinstall an APP on the Mac, I have to re-enter all MSN email data. When I delete and re-install now, it is re-finding all my email/password info like it is still in my system, but don't know where.

    I don't know if that is related to why I get the error on sign-in but I never deleted and re-installed a MSN or Windows App before and have it still be somewhere--the Mac is saving it somewhere.

    Any ideas? My wife is extremely irritated by it. Seems a small glitch but it happens every time I turn on system. Most annoying.

    You probably did not fully uninstall MSN. Try using uApp.

    I reccomend the latest adium beta, I mainly use that, but use Mercury messenger when I want videochat...

    When you say pretty good as far as these things go? Is this not a good every day use uninstaller program?
