    Hi Everyone!

    I'm having problems logging in to msn messenger, a window pops up and says error code 0x80004005 and then when I press the connection troubleshooter button it says that I might not have internet connectivity. I emailed Msn representative and that person said I might have third parties...
    Confused ...please someone help me.

    Thanks
    Portugalia

    Sounds like your MSN Messenger is corrupt. One way to fix this may be to download it again and re-install it. You can get it from HERE.

    is likely that there is some software on your computer conflicting with msn, and not allowing it to sign in... perhaps a firewall, antivirus or spyware killing app? does msn explorer give you an error msg? error number?

    i read a bit more into it, and found that your account likely is being blocked... a program on your computer may be using messenger to send out spam (or at least doing something to make messenger think that)... essentially, messenger thinks the terms of use have been breached... i'd suggest running a spyware check on ur machine

    Third parties what?


    Some websites don't work properly with cookies disabled,and some don't work at all with session cookies disabled.

    Go to tools/internet options/privacy/advanced,put a check in Override Automatic Cookie Handling,then accept First and third party cookies,then put a check in Always Allow Session Cookies. Ok your way out,then allow the same thing in your firewall.

    Hope this works for you.
