Have been trying to connect to Windows live messenger for past 3 or 4 days, previously not a problem. Cannot connect coming up with error codes and when I troubleshoot I get message back saying there is trouble with my internet connection. My internet connection is fine as I can connect to any other website without any problems.

Cannot install upgrade to messenger so I can use my webcam


First uninstall the one you have
then do a windows update on your pc
you should be able to download an update for messenger after that.
If you still can't then open add and remove programs
then windows programs scroll down and make sure there is no check mark in windows messenger
if there is then take it out once done restart pc then download windows live messenger again

Windows live messenger sign in error code 81000306


That means Windows Live Messenger is unable to contact the authentication server.

Open up Live Messenger and go to Tools and go to Options. Under Connection Settings, choose Advanced Settings. Make sure there are nothing in the proxy fields. Make sure the SOCKS area has nothing in it and click okay until you get back to the Messenger window and try to sign in.

If that doesn't work and you are running Windows Vista, click start, type: cmd, right-click cmd.exe when it appears under Applications, click Run As Administrator, type the following: "netsh int tcp set global autotuninglevel=disabled", rress enter, restart your computer”

Hope this helps!

Cant log in windows live messenger - they says Error code 81000395


as refer to MSN error code,
You may not be able to sign in because you entered the wrong e-mail address. Re-enter your credentials and try to sign in to Messenger again.

If you sure you are enter correct username & password, second thing to check is your connectivity. In Windows Live Messenger,
  1. Click the Tools menu, and then click Options.
  2. In the left pane, click Connection.
  3. Click Refresh to freshen your display and view current information, such as signal strength, account name, and connection type. — or —
  4. To run the Connection Troubleshooter, click Start and the troubleshooter will run an analysis of your system and connection settings (Settings associated with your Internet connection.) . If you're using an 802.11b wireless card, the Connection Troubleshooter may indicate that you have a wired connection.
  5. Click Finish.
To test your connection settings:
  1. Click the Tools menu, and then click Options.
  2. Under Connection, click Advanced Settings.
  3. Click Test to run several tests on your connections.
  4. If you'd like to save a log of your server connections, select the Save a log of my server connections to help troubleshoot connection problems check box.

No connec tion


Hello there, Windows messenger is the free program that comes with Windows, its not very good so you can download "Windows Live Messenger" which is what most people use. Either search in google.com for "Windows Live Messenger" or copy and paste the following address into your web browser.

http://get.live.com/messenger/overview

From here you can download, install and connect.

Hope this helps.

Error code 80072efd


1. get ALL Microsoft updates, not just express
2. update messenger
3. uninstall and reinstall live messenger ONLY after you have backed up your contacts and other stuff. This is a last resort though.
