    Hi all,
    can you help me with the last build of WLM 2009 (14.0.8050.1202)?
    After installation, when I try to login Live Messenger shows me the
    error *8000401a* "-Signing in to Windows Live Messenger failed because
    the service is temporarily unavailable. Please try again later-."
    I'm using -Windows XP Professional-, I don't have any firewall and my
    Antivirus is -Eset NOD32-; I have a wireless connection and WLM 2009
    works fine on another pc connected to the same router.
    I 've done everything, I renstalled it, repaired it, I cleaned registry
    and I tried logging in with 3 different accounts. I've also deleted
    "-Windows Live Contacts-" and "-Messenger Cache-" folders: I still get
    that error.

    Can you help me with this problem? I would really appreciate it.

    I'm getting the same problem.
    I have full access to the internet (everything else is working)
    Before installing this update messenger worked every time with no problems.
    I don't believe this problem is with my PC. Its a messenger problem.

    There are lots of people having this problem and yet we still have no fix.

    Get your finger out MS
