Have you verified you have network connectivety? Open your web browser try going to a website once there click on a link. It is important to know if you can actually surf the web if you can not then we may need to take a look at your network connection first.

    Wow, that is a good clue! So no matter what in the evening, you can surf the web... and that is smooth with no consectutive delays. Two things, I am thinking the server that your MSIM is full, try downloading the Yahoo version of chat. Try using it in the evening when MSIM won't work.( You can chat with people on MSIM from Yahoo, I do it all the time.) Just have a friend stay with you and see if it works. If you can successfully use Yahoo chat with someone on MSIM and Yahoo, then the problem may be with the MSIM chat server you are being longged on to. If it does not work, we we need to look locally at you computer and your gateway, or cable modem, or firewall settings.



    I suspect it will work though.

Try Re-Installing Live Messenger. FYI the Latest Windows Live Messenger needs a file update to be downloaded from MS site. Its a KB File. You may need to download that file. Please update further..

Live Mail on Windows 7 always comes up with "Not responding"


This problem raises mostly due to net speed settings, but some times "not responding" relates to server concepts stating which is in busy mode

All my contacts are missing from my contact list


This is what MS told me to do..but did not work. Finally they told me to use 8.5. Try if it helps you.

Messenger Connectivity Log & Contacts Log

A. Delete the old log files.

Right-click the Start button and then click Explore. In the window that opens, click Folder Options on the Tools menu. Click the View tab, and then make sure that Show Hidden files and folders option is selected.

1. Click Start, click Run, type %userprofile%\Local Settings\, and then click OK.
2. Double-click the Application Data folder, double-click Microsoft, and then double-click Messenger.
3. In the Messenger folder, look for the MsnMsgr.txt file and delete it.

Note: If you get an error stating that you cannot delete MsnMsgr, please make sure that Windows Live Messenger is not running on the background. To check this, open the Task Manager window and check whether the msnmsgr.exe is running on Processes. If it is, select the application and click End Process. If you are prompted, click Yes.

To open the Task Manager: Click Start and then Run. Type taskmgr.exe and click OK.

4. If you don't see the MsnMsgr.txt file, please proceed to step B to enable the connection logging.

B. Turn on connection logging if the feature is not yet enabled.

1. Start Windows Live Messenger but do not sign in.
2. On the Tools menu, click Options.
3. In the left navigation bar, click Connection.
4. Click Advanced Settings.
5. Under Connection Logging, make sure that the Save a log of my server connections to help troubleshoot connection problems check box is selected.
6. Click OK.

C. Try to sign in to Windows Live Messenger again to replicate the error or issue being encountered with the service. A new connectivity log file, MSNMsgr.txt, is created the moment a sign in attempt to the service is made. When errors or issues are encountered, the connection logging feature will capture their logs.

D. Access the newly generated MsnMSgr.txt by following the steps in step A. Please look also for the ContactsLog.txt file. Please attach the files on your e-mail response to us.

Copy of the Windows Live Contacts folder

The Windows Live Contacts folder can be accessed on this path:

C:\Documents and Settings\ Your Windows logon name \Local Settings\Application Data\Microsoft\Windows Live Contacts

Note: Windows Logon name is the logon name that you use to sign in to Windows.

Right-click the Windows Live Contacts, select Send To, and then select Compressed (zipped) Folder. A compressed file is created in the same folder. Please upload the file to Windows Live SkyDrive and we will retrieve the file from there.

To access Windows Live SkyDrive, please do these:

  1. Open your Internet browser and visit http://skydrive.live.com.
  2. Sign in using your Messenger ID and password.
  3. Click on the Public folder.
  4. Click Add files and locate the zipped Windows Live Contacts folder. Upload it.
  5. Once the file is successfully uploaded, please send us the URL or link on your e-mail response so we can download it.

While we are working on this issue, we suggest that you temporarily use the earlier version of Windows Live Messenger (v8.5) so you can continue to communicate with your friends. Please note that to be able to install the previous version, you need to uninstall all the Windows Live Essentials programs (i.e. version 2009 of Messenger, Mail, Photo Gallery, etc.).

1. Exit Windows Live Messenger.
2. Click Start, click Run, type appwiz.cpl and press Enter
3. On the Add or Remove Programs window, click on Windows Live Essentials, and then click Uninstall/Change
4. Select Uninstall, click Continue.
5. Under Select the programs you want to uninstall, check all the Windows Live programs shown and then click Continue.

Windows Live Messenger 8.5 can be downloaded from:
