if you could give me the error code then i might be able to help.
try to get the error code as welll as error message.

Like Xiaarra said, an error number would be most appreciated, but here are a few common errors.

First of all.

When you go into the Application Data folder in XP, DELETE IT, trust me, it will come right back. If you want save transcripts, they are not saved there anyway.

If you delete that folder and restart, often times you will have a fixed messenger simpky by ridding it of bulk junk.

Again, if I had an error number I could be more specific on it.

If all else fails you could always use webmessenger.msn.com thats what i use when my msn dont work :'(

webmessenger is gay. i can't spam my friends on it Very Happy.

anyway, make sure your connection settings are correct..

i had that problem too and it was my connection settings playing with it.

My first impression of your problem is with your firewall. It is blocking it. Therefore, you have problems signing into the msn messenger. Allow connection in the firewall for your msn messenger or off your firewall to solve it.

have you upgraded your msn messenger to the latest version?
are you on a router and if you are are the ports open for msn messenger?

Mine goves an error on all my win XP account. The error number is 80072ee7.

I believe that the error code '80072ee7' means that MSN can't lookup the DNS name of messenger.msn.com (the server it connects to).

If you get this error, make sure that you have internet connectivity and your firewall isn't blocking port 1863 (the MSN Messenger port)

If you have problems with MSN Messenger, try Miranda IM (http://miranda-im.org/). Miranda IM is modular, so all the features you don't use can be removed (and it can be extended using plugins).

Miranda IM is very basic to begin with, but install some plugins and you'll have a great IM program! Plugins I recommend are TabSRMM 0.9.9.93 and IEView 1.0.2.1 (and the MSN Smiley Pack). All the plugins can be downloaded from the Miranda IM website

Mhbye yoy have blocked the msn with zone alrm just get to zone alarm and clik on program control and see if you haven`t blocked this program.

As everyone else said, check the firewall.
Than, re-install. That should do the trick.

Open Zone Alarm Go to Program Control from there click on the program tab scan down the list till you find MSN Messenger when you find it look to the right of it and see if there is a check a X or a question mark. If there is all qustion marks it will ask for permission. If they are checks it already has permisions and if it is a X then change it to either a check or a question mark. Also If you have sp2 on that xp machine and your going to run zone alarm turn off the windows firewall tht also could be your probelm. I hope this helps and if not I'm Sorry
