Windows live messenger error code 8e5e0408


Check your event logs running C:\Windows\System32\eventvwr.exe
If you see lots of wlcomm errors under Windows Logs/Application, that means wlcomm has no access to your user directory.

To solve the problem:

1. Back up your user directory under c:\Users\%username% just in case
2. right-click on x:\users\%username% and go to properties
3. go to security tab and click advanced
4. Change the permission set to the following:
Type Name Permission Inhefited from Apply To
Allow %username% Full Control <not inherited> This folder, subfolders and files
Allow SYSTEM Full Control <not inherited> This folder, subfolders and files
Allow Administrators Full Control <not inherited> This folder, subfolders and files

Make sure you uncheck the "include the inheritable..." and "replace.." checkboxes.

Click OK and let it run.

Now you should be able to log on to Messenger.
