Bug : Windows Live Messenger disconnects repeatedly

Windows Live Messenger (newest version) disconnects every 5-10 minutes if left idle.
Any thoughts on how to troubleshoot this?

 

EDIT: Ok, here's the last part of the log, when Live Messenger disconnects.

I didn't include anything else because the last message before this part had a
one-minute difference and the log afterwards was MSN connecting back (left it
disconnected for 2-3 minutes on purpose). Any ideas?

    I don't have any exact ideas but you could start checking first by going into firewall action log (under settings/firewall) and seeing that it does not do any action when you get disconnected.

     

    If there is nothing in action.log then I guess you could start turning different parts of Internet Security off one by one and seeing when the problem stops. I would be very interested to hear if you can locate which module is causing the problem.

    Ok, I think I've narrowed it down a bit but that doesn't make it any easier.

     

    Disabling the firewall or any of its components doesn't fix the problem.  Disabling on access scanning and Deep guard doesn't fix the problem either.  Exclusively adding msnmsg.exe to viruscan Exclusions or the Firewall's Allowed applications doesn't fix the problem.  However, disabling "Show information about the song I'm listening to" in Windows Live Messenger (WLM) seems to either fix the issue completely or makes its appearance rare (not sure which one is it as I'm still testing it).

     

    It does seem weird but from my tests so far, the problem appears mostly when listening to music through some media player.  What doesn't seem right is why other programs I've tested, like Avast Antivirus 6.0 and Kaspersky Internet Security 2012 do not cause this problem with the same settings.

     

    I'm going to try other media players next, to check if F-secure has some sort of problem with a specific media player of it there's some sort of conflict between F-secure and the "Show information about the song I'm listening to" function in WLM.

     

    Any ideas in general about this?

     

    EDIT: Nope, the problem persists with different media players.  Disabling the option I mentioned seems to fix the issue so far though, but that's a workaround, it shouldn't happen.
