    Windows Live Messenger/MSN slow to show unseen chat messages

    Hey guys, I’ve got a Windows 7 64-bit edition on a Quad Core, and also have Windows XP installed. On XP, everything runs fine, but if I use Messenger on Win7, there’s a slight problem.

    If I have 2 chats open in tabs (using Plus!), then if someone says something in one chatbox and I switch to see it, it appears as if the moment I switched, the person just sent the message, no matter how old the message may be. However, once I’ve seen the message and I switch to another chat or program window and come back to it, it’s fine. It only happens when I have multiple chat tabs and messenger alerts me of unseen messages. It works fine if I only have a single person’s window open (i.e. no tabs). I haven’t tried switching tabs off, I suspect it will work but I’ll check and report back. This also reminds me, I’ve noticed that if I type fast, then the letters appearing onscreen are SLIGHTLY sluggish. It’s barely noticeable, but it’s there. I noticed especially when I rubbed and replaced the character with a new one.

    On XP everything runs fine.

    The best bet would be to take the problem to the Messenger Plus community since it seems to be a specific to Plus. I’ve not seen any reports of such a problem so maybe you might want to let the devs know the situation. Are you using the latest version of WLM and MSN Plus? Are they compatible with each other (in terms of version for version)?

    Yea I just posted there. I’m using WLM 2009 with Plus! 5 and it works fine on XP. Dunno why Win7 is giving issues.

    What you can try doing is using a different program such as Pidgin or something like that. I don’t really fancy me some Pidgin but it would solve your problem. I had a similar issue to this and I hadn’t found a viable option. However, this was about a year ago that I had this problem.

    All I did was keep a good eye on things and make sure I didn’t lose track although sometimes I did.
