My hotmail account is blocked


In the age of instant messaging and constant messages from friends and sometimes less-than friends, it's no wonder Windows Live Messenger (formerly MSN) and other instant message systems have the ability to block certain contacts.
For the blocked, however, this process can be uncomfortable.
There are methods available online for you to check if your friend has simply been absent from their messenger or if you have been blocked.

Open a browser window and go to the website Block Status (see Below).
http://www.blockstatus.com/msn/stchecker
In the top, middle-right tabs you will see the option for "Block Checker."
Click Block Checker to open a page with a text box requesting the Windows Live Messenger email address of the person you think has blocked you.
The "Windows Live Messenger" address can alternatively be Gmail, Hotmail, Live or Yahoo email addresses.


Type in an email address and click "Check Status."
A text box will appear with a status updater informing you if you have been blocked or if the contact is simply offline.

Checking on MSN

Open Window Live Messenger and sign in.


Scroll through your contacts list and right-click on the contact you wish to check. Scroll down and click the "View Profile" tab.


Check in the contact's "Notes" section.
If you cannot post a message there, it means you have been blocked.

Who Blocked Me

Log on to the website WhoBlockedMe (see Below).
http://www.whoblocked.me/index.php?lang=en


Log in to your Messenger with your email and password using the text boxes.
(Change your Windows Live Messenger password after using this system for safety reasons.)


Click the tab "Click To See Who Blocked You" to see a list of those who have blocked you.
This also works to find out who has deleted you completely.

Error code 8007ee7


hi,

Possible solution

  • The most likely cause for this problem is that your firewall does not allow MSN Messenger to access the Internet. This happens often if you install a new version of Messenger. Make sure MSN Messenger is allowed access in your firewall rules.
  • This error might also be occuring because there is a proxy server enabled in MSN Messenger while you do not use one. To remove the proxy settings, click the "Tools" menu and then "Options..." at your MSN Messenger main window. Then in the options screen click "Connection" in the list to the left. Next, click the "Advanced Settings..." button. You can try and uncheck all checkboxes in this screen except the one labeled "TCP" to let MSN Messenger connect through a direct connection. If that does not work you can restore the settings again by checking the boxes you unchecked before.

and then on 'repair'
wait til the wizard finishes
sign in again

Start
control panel
add&remove programs
'windows essentials' ( if using WLM 2009)
'windows live messenger(if you use a previous version)
remove

=?if it doesn't work
? You have to use this program created by microsoft to remove WLM 9.0 beta3/WLM 2009
Windows Installer CleanUp Utility 1.0
http://support.microsoft.com/kb/290301/e…
once started search in the programs list for "(All Users) Windows Live Messenger [14.0.5027.0908]"

A regular issue faced is the dreaded “Another version of the product is already installed”, “Your computer has a newer version of MSN Messenger than the one you are trying to install”, ““Your computer has a newer version of Windows Live Messenger than the one you are trying to install”, “The feature you are trying to use is on a network resource that is unavailable” and similar messages.

I can't log into msn..says errore porta..net messenger service non attiva..dice che sono connessa a una rete cablata,please help me


It sounds as tho your firewall is blocking the service. Go into your firewall, you will find a list of allowed programs, and simply click on allow, for MSN. BTW, MSN uses port 1863

How can i unblock firewall on msn ? i cannot go on msn even though my password and e mail id is correct


double click your norton thing in the taskbar and click the tab about internet security. Then click to open the settings section. Under web browsing, click the personal firewall. Click the configure button. A new window will open and then in the side panel, choose program control. Find msn in the list and choose 'allow.' If it's not in th elist, click add and find it on your computer and continue accordingly.

if you recently downloaded McAfee, for some reason, it has a huge problem with granting access to msn messanger. Its not your computers firewall that has the problem, its McAfees. So basically what I did is click on the McAfee Icon on the toolbar, and go to settings, enter the security centre and tyr going to recent events, and see if on the list it says “Program Windows live messenger has been blocked access……” Blah blah blah. So click on this, and at the bottom, click, GRANT ACCESS. This should work, cos it did for me!! So good luck, let me know if you got on well
