Question Windows live messenger error code 80040154
I am currently using windows 7. I have tried to sign in to Windows live messenger and a window constantly pops up. The window says "We can't sign you in to Windows live messenger. Signing in to Windows live messenger failed because the service is temporarily unavailable.Please try again later. Error code 80040154." I have clicked "retry" many times and even restarted my computer. The error still pops up and I can't sign in. I can only sign in on the website. I really want to sign in on the automatic Windows live messenger that came with the windows live essentials download, but it just won't let me. I don't know if using a belkin wireless internet adapter has anything to do with it. ANY suggestions?
