Start MSN Messenger beta 7 again & you'll have to issue your passport account information again. You'll receive one more error. Login again and it will work. from http://messenger-support.spaces.live.com/blog/cns!8B3F39C76A8B853F!349.entry
I don't know what exactly is happening when you say it is not functioning. I'm assuming that the software would load but it wouldn't send and receive messages.
Check your firewall - it maybe that your firewall or even antivirus (sometimes it's bundled with a firewall) is blocking certain ports that those programs require to send and receive messages.
To diagnose this, go to control panel then security centre and click "windows firewall" on the left, change settings and turn off the firewall. Leave that control panel open and attempt to use MSN etc.
To completely uninstall MSN messenger, go to RUN and type REGEDIT to bring up the regedit window, now click on the arrow beside HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE>software and delete it from there, restart your system and try installing it again.
You possibly don't have administrator privileges turned on.. If you're using Vista, then go to Control Panel > User Accounts > Turn User Account Control On or Off , and uncheck the box and press OK. Then reboot the computer and try to connect, it should work then..
If you have Norton Internet Security you need to do the following as suggested by Symantec. If you don't have Norton, let me know, but more or less this is the same across the board for whatever antivirus suite you have, disabled the instant messaging protection and then proceed to download and update the MSN Messenger.

Disable NAV Instant Messenger scanning to stop the error message.
Uninstall MSN Messenger
Install the latest version of MSN Messenger from MSN.com
Reenable NAV Instant Messenger scanning.
For the certificate expired problem, check the time and date to make sure it is correct. If it is not the you need to replace the BIOS battery on your laptop. (Not something I recommend you trying yourself, take to a Local shop) I suggest uninstalling then reinstalling msn messenger.
