You will find the firewall in control panel and the click on exeptions, then click add programme and then search for msn ( if youve not downloaded windows live the newer version of msn should work straight off, see link below)

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.

Please follow steps to resolved issue

The Solutions to MSN Error Code 8004882080048820_lan.jpg Internet Explorer - Try removing the tick next to Internet Explorer 'Proxy server' settings, instead, go with the 'Automatically detect settings'.
1) Launch Internet Explorer, click Tools and then click Internet Options.
From the Internet Options dialog box, go to the Connections tab.
Click LAN Setting. Un check the Use a proxy server for your LAN (These settings will not apply to dial-up or VPN connections) checkbox. Finally positively tick: 'Automatically detect settings'.
2) Register softpub.dll.
Click Start (Button), and then click Run, type regsvr32 softpub.dll. Restart MSN Messenger. See also Error code 81000314
3) If necessary, logon as a local administrator and set the computer's clock to the correct date and time. (Check on the internet if possible.)
4) Turn off the firewall temporarily. 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.
NetGear problem, but also with some other routers
a) Enter IP address 192.168.0.1 in your browser's address bar.
b) Log on with ISP user name and password.
c) Enter Admin, password
d) Navigate to advanced menu, WAN set-up
e) Change MTU size to 1400
5) Try a password of no more than 8 characters.
6) If you are using IE 7.0 check the SSL Settings. Internet options advanced (Tab) scroll down to the bottom. Security section. Tick 'Use ssl 2.0'.
7) One of the simplest ways of curing MSN error 80048820 is to unplug, or restart your modem. This is particularly effective for cable modems.
8) We should have tried this solution before; check that the MSN site is 'up' 'available'. However, even if the site is down, you don't usually get error code 80048820.
8a) As a variation, of checking online, you could try phoning your local Microsoft Support office. Local area numbers available from http://support.microsoft.com.
9) Have you just installed any anti-virus software? Did the anti-virus software just make a big update? Try disabling and see if that cures the error.
10) A drastic solution is to try uninstalling MSN Messenger version 8.0 or 7.5 and install Microsoft MSN version 7.0.

Hope it can resolved issue

Acer Aspire 5630 will not fuction with MSN messenger Yahoo messenger or Skype


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.

Anybody can help me with this? When i try


Solutions to MSN Error Code 81000306 1) Wait for MSN to repair their Server! Meanwhile check the status of the Messenger service, at: http://messenger.msn.com/Status.aspx
2) Delete ListCache.dat
Launch CMD and navigate to %appdata%\microsoft.
CD %appdata%\microsoft
Dir /s ListCache.dat
Decide if you want to delete the cache.
Del /s ListCache.dat
Restart your MSN Messenger.
3) Register softpub.dll.
Click Start (Button), and then click Run, type regsvr32 softpub.dll. Restart MSN Messenger.
It would do no harm to also use regsvr32 to re-register: wintrust.dll, initpki.dll, Rsaenh.dll Mssip32.dll and Cryptdlg.dll. Here is the command string to register these dlls. Launch the 'Run' command and paste:
regsvr32 softpub.dll Wintrust.dll Initpki.dll Rsaenh.dll Mssip32.dll Cryptdlg.dll
4) Another problem could be firewall related, thus try temporarily disabling the firewall. If this cures the problem, make sure that MSN Messenger is allowed full access through the firewall.
Your problem could also be related to Error Code 80048820
5) If other people can access the MSN Messenger service, and you are the only one getting Error Code 81000306, then you could look at your anti-virus software. Has anything changed recently?
6) One more thought, could your account be locked out? Try another account if have one, or can create a new account.

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

Check your internet connection, may be your connection encountered problems...always download from your trustful sources website. i think better you should check your firewall settings. If you use Personal Firewall, make sure it allows your connection to receiving incoming connections and allows you download yahoo messenger,check it out, may be it blocked your yahoo messenger set up from downloading it.

Try these! Good Luck!!
