I've just got VPC6, and installed Win XP Pro on it. Everything works fine (albeit slowly!), apart from 2 strange things. 1. MSN Messenger wont sign in - it says "We could not connect you to the service possibly because of a problem with your internet connection or the service". and 2. Internet Explorer connects fine to every website BUT the messenger.msn.com one!! Very strange indeed. I'm sharing my Mac's ethernet ADSL connection with VPC. Anyone any ideas?
