    iv had this problem, not only with msn messanger, but windows messanger, and a few games. i think i hiot on something while installing a few patches for a game. after each patch was installed and i would try to play ZA would ask me if i wanted to allow it to connect, now i had checked the remember this answer button and hit yes. well i think (and i could very well be wrong, it happens alot) that has something to do with the version number of the EXE file. any time it changes it seems to ask again. maybe the EXE file is being changed by something? a virus, auto update, dont know. this is just what i have seen with my own 2 eyes on my machines.

    dam this is annoying

    - with MSN it come up with "changed program" - so maybe it a problem with MSN


    - but for other programs, like soulseek, AVG update etc it just comes up as if it had never asked, and when i look in the prograns list, It is even there!!!! not at all not even as a program that needs to ask, it just int on the list!!!

    make sure the registry key "WaitToKillServiceTimeout reads 20000 it can be found @
    HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\ControlSet001\Control

    if that doesnt work try shutting down via a diferent method
    (ive noticed that this happens to me when i shut down via the power button on my keyboard but does not happen when i shut down via start menu)

    Make sure you choose 'upgrade' and not 'fresh install' when you update ZA, i also prefer to set the program managment into 'low mode' where it just automatically adds programs. I then check the list manually every few weeks and block the ones that i dont want to have access :)

    yeah, well after a bit more expermenting

    - it seam that it is beacuse it has a problem with me using the power button to kill it, and if i shut him down via that start menu it fine

    - but that so annoying, OMG :duh: :wallbash:
