Re: error code 80072efd

1. get ALL Microsoft updates, not just express
2. update messenger
3. uninstall and reinstall live messenger ONLY after you have backed up your contacts and other stuff. This is a last resort though.

Yahoo Messenger Error's!!


How many of us have seen Error Message's like :-

1. YPager.exe
2. Sorry for Inconvenience
3. Window's Unable to Download Yahoo Messenger

The Most Common Reason for the First and Second Error Message is Software Corruption. Whenever you see Error Messages 1 and 2, it always indicate there has been a recent change in Registry.

You could Read a Nice Article for the same :-


The ONLY way to fix this is to REINSTALL Yahoo Messenger.

Go to :-

Start > Control Panel > Programs > Uninstall Program > Select Yahoo > Uninstall

The Above steps are Generic One.

Then, Reinstall the Yahoo Messenger.


For Error 3, Make sure that you do have a Working Internet Connection and you are able to download other files. I have seen issue with Yahoo Messenger with Slow Connection.

Download the Yahoo Messenger from the Below Sites than from Yahoo Messenger Site :-

As of now, let me provide you with a Link from where you could directly Install Yahoo Messenger ( Link working right now ) :-

If Problem still Persists, Seems that there is a Virus/Adware/Spyware problem. It could also mean a problem with Windows.

In that Case, Either Restore or Reinstall Your Windows.

Windows live messenger sign in error code 81000306

That means Windows Live Messenger is unable to contact the authentication server.

Open up Live Messenger and go to Tools and go to Options. Under Connection Settings, choose Advanced Settings. Make sure there are nothing in the proxy fields. Make sure the SOCKS area has nothing in it and click okay until you get back to the Messenger window and try to sign in.

If that doesn't work and you are running Windows Vista, click start, type: cmd, right-click cmd.exe when it appears under Applications, click Run As Administrator, type the following: "netsh int tcp set global autotuninglevel=disabled", rress enter, restart your computer”

Hope this helps!

- While you try to Sign in MSN Messenger you getting an error message with the no. 80048820

- Remove Internet Explorer proxy server settings and check the 'Automatically detect settings'.
- Launch Internet Explorer, click "Tools" and then click Internet Options. From the Internet Options dialog box, go to the Connections tab. Click LAN Setting. Uncheck the Use a proxy server for your LAN checkbox. Finally tick/check: 'Automatically detect settings'.

- Correct the computer system's Time/Day as current (if required).

- Click Start (Button), and then click Run, type regsvr32 softpub.dll click ok.

- Turn off the firewall. Check firewall settings such as Norton: "Block access to secure sites". If this cures the problem, make sure that Microsoft's MSN Messenger is allowed full access through your firewall.
