Microsoft says it has fixed the problems which have plagued its instant messenger service for the last two days. It blamed an isolated problem in a data center which was fixed late yesterday.

Users have had trouble logging on and communicating since Monday afternoon. Microsoft said the problems were intermittent but had hit a "significant number" of customers. Microsoft claims 145m users for MSN Messenger.

Earlier this month Messenger was targeted by the Bropia worm virus which spread via the IM service. Microsoft said the latest outage was not due to the worm.
