Error code explanation and possible solution
Error code 81000306 usually occurs when there is a problem with the
.NET Messenger service. one or more of the servers providing it might
be down or having problems, with as result that you can no longer sign
in. This normally won't take longer then a few minutes/hours. For more
information you can check the .NET Messenger Service Status or our own forum.

Please note that the Service Status is known to not always be very accurate, if problems do appear the best thing to do is wait them out. Surely there are many other very interesting things to do. If the error keeps bothering you for over a few days there are some more things you can try below.
Other steps that might help It may also indicate you have a proxy server or firewall on your network that does not allow incoming connections to Messenger. This is usually the case in companies or schools. Ask the network administrater how you can use Messenger and if they will allow it. You can also use a web based messenger in this case (if these sites aren't blocked by the network administrator). See our links section for webbased messengers.

Just uninstall it completely from the control panel add remove programs ...than go to my computer /Cdrive/program files and look for yahoo...and inside remove the messenger folder (same with the MSN if it is the case) ...in this moment you have removed all trace of the old program inside your computer ..and just reinstall it clean ...from the original site ..Here is the link ...just download and install...
I forgot to mention ..if the program starts but just refuse to sign you in ..there can be a problem with your account ...and it is either blocked cause someone tried to break your password and failed too many times(this will be back in 24 H ) ...or it is teh server ..and you also have to wait fo rthem to solve problems ...but if it is the program itself that do not starts ..than do what I just explained...and reinstall the program ...from scratch ..cause it is damaged..
