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)

Cannot save change to mcfee, to allow webcam to work with msn messenger live


In my oppinion, ditch McAfee and simply use the Windows Firewall together with a free Virus Scanner such as AVG.
People will tell you that AVG is bad, however with a little bit of research you will find that it actually scores better than Norton -and- McAfee.
For added security you may also want to make sure that your routers firewall is turned on.
A simple spyware scan once a week or when ever convenient with something like SpyBot will do.

Msn connection problem through router


Make sure your internet browser settings are set to default and that you can actually get to other sites besides msn.com before deciding this is a msn web site issue on your firewall. Also, make sure if you have a software firewall like Norton that you allow and have not inadvertantly blocked msn.com. Add msn.com in your browser settings to the 'safe sites' list in browser settings.

Msn wont let me sign in under error code 80048820.


Since you can't immediately login, remember that you can try logging into the Web Messenger ,
at least until you can restore your normal Messenger functionality:
http://webmessenger.msn.com

However, here are some suggestions you should check/try if you haven't already.

1. The date on your computer needs to be set properly -- double click the clock verify that
the time and date are set.
2. If your password information is not saved, verify that you are typing it in with the
correct case (uppercase or lowercase).
3. Change your password @ https://login.passport.com/ChangePW.srf to
something smaller (under 10-12 characters), then try signing in again.
4. If you use a firewall (like ZoneAlarm, Norton Internet Security etc. ), it's possible
that Messenger doesn't have the correct rights to access the Internet, especially since you
upgraded. You may need to re/add Messenger to the allowed list of programs in your firewall
if this is the case.
5. If you disabled your firewall in the past, it still may be blocking Messenger -- try
restarting it and see if that helps the situation. You also might try uninstalling an
installed firewall, to verify that it isn't causing a problem (even if it is disabled).
6. Clear your IE cache and cookies -- open Internet Explorer, click the Tools menu, then
Internet Options, then click the Delete Files button, and when that's complete click the
Delete Cookies button.
7. Check your IE Security settings -- open Internet Explorer, click the Tools menu, then
Internet Options, then Advanced tab, scroll to the Security section, and verify that "Check
for server certificate revocation" is unchecked. Also verify that 'Use SSL 2.0' and Use SSL
3.0' is checked, then click OK.
8. Click Start, then Run, and enter the following:
regsvr32 softpub.dll
then click OK
and do the same for the following:
regsvr32 wintrust.dll
regsvr32 initpki.dll
regsvr32 MSXML3.dll

Error code 80072ee7


This error occurs when you are not connected to the internet, check your internet connection and make sure it is working properly.
The most likely cause for this problem is that your firewall does not allow Messenger to access the internet. This happens often if you install a new version of Messenger. Make sure Messenger is allowed access in your firewall rules. See our article on using Messenger through a firewall application.
This error might also occur if a proxy server is enabled in Messenger or Internet Explorer while you do not use one. To remove the proxy settings, click the "Tools" menu and then "Options..." at your 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 Messenger connect through a direct connection. If that does not work you can restore the settings again by checking the boxes you unchecked before.

My windows live messenger account will not sign in even though my passord and username are correct. the error code given is 80072745


This is generally a firewall problem. Try reseting your router first. If that doesn't work, make sure your software firewall applications are allowing msn traffic on port 1863.
