All u have to do is: uncheack the "remember me" and
the "remember my p@ssword" thingy and re-type ur "username" and
"p@ssword" again, And click "sign in". WAIT... For about 2,5 min. Then
a new window will pop-up, and there will be a button saying
"Troubleshooter", Click on that button, and then another window will
pop-up saying "Windows Live Messenger Connection TroubeShooter" You
will then see in that window, a list of "Test Results" There will be
listed a list that will have a list of stuff wich u need to have
running good to make windows live messenger work. Slowly yet fastly you
will see next to each iteam will apear a "check mark" or a "warning
sign". Now the fixing part: When all of the list has a symbole next to
it, then u can see wich stuff is working fine and wich have problems,
if, There's more then one wich has a "warning sign" next to it thats
fine. then when all the test results have a symbole next to them click
"Repair" ( if one of the iteams has a "warning sign" next to it ) if
not then click "restart" if so, then click the button then. wait.. 1,2
min. and when its finished close the window and u should see that ur
windows messenger is trying to log in again wait and there u go!!! TIP:
Key Ports is the most common problem. Thank You for using FIXYAA!!
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:
Click Add files and locate the zipped Windows Live Contacts folder. Upload it.
Once the file is successfully uploaded, please send us the URL or link on your e-mail response so we can download it.
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.

redownloading the software can help. If the problem persists it could be to do with your internet. Check your router settings and maybe assign windows live messenger a port and allow access through it.
