    I have to use Microsoft Messenger at work to communicate with my co-workers. But when launched it starts using all the bandwidth of my connection (400 KB/sec down and 100 KB/sec up.) I tried reinstalling it but that did not help, i even tried reapplying the newest office update and restarted. Did not help... has anyone else had this issue?

    its causing my AD account to get locked every time i run it.

    That's not a solution for his problem , maybe he's using a corporate account

    And do you even have one single idea that might help?

    I must agree with Consultant here, if at all possible, give Adium a try.

    What version of Messenger are you using? Are you connecting it to an Office Communicator Server?

    Is this a problem that just started happening, or has it always been like this?

    im using the latest version, yes they are using a server as it uses domain credentials. It seemed to start happening after applying the latest office update. I do not know how to roll it back.
