First Problem: Messenger cannot connect to MSN Network on Acer Aspire One

Here are the details of the first problem that I have found with the Acer Aspire One Netbook.

Problem: Out of the box the provided Messenger application will not connect to the MSN Network, returning an error about the MSN network not supporting the Messenger protocol.

This problem is caused by Microsoft changing it's MSN protocols after the Goldbuild for the Acer Aspire One was completed.

Solution: A quick fix. Acer have released a fix and performing a live update will solve the problem. After the update is completed the messenger application will run very well.

It's worth performing a live update as soon as you can on the Aspire One after purchase, there are several updates to be downloaded and performed and may take a while to complete.
