  4. oh, okay, there's a problem with the service. How about some fu^&ing acknowledgement from MS about this issue??? Something on the MSN site perhaps??? A work around? - .NET Developer Portal of Choice

    I'm having the same problem as well...every now and again, it'll connect and stay on, then I'll get disconnected again, with the same error. Most frustrating!! - .NET Developer Portal of Choice

    I'm having the same issue at the moment, just tryed this site and managed to log in at the moment.

    Solutions to fix it; start/run type:

    regsvr32 Softpub.dll

    regsvr32 Mssip32.dll

    regsvr32 Initpki.dll (this one took about 30 sec to be complete.)

    After you done this, you should be able to sign in the MSN Messenger!

    see how you go with that. :) - .NET Developer Portal of Choice

    this has been going on for +10 days on and off! driving me crazy. just tried
    the help page and it's off line too!

    any chance you'll let people know when to expect this to improve?

    for the past month there have been loads of problems looking at hotmail and
    messenger through a mac. So much so i just got a .mac account.

    Ok, I keep getting 8100030e at work. Sometimes fixes itself, sometimes goes
    off for ages.

    But more worrying is that at home I've not been able to log into messenger
    for about 6 months. Pretty much gave up on it, as received no good fix for
    error 81000306.

    Come on Microsoft!!! Fix the problem, or tell me how to fix it. Reason for

    Very annoying. Permanent switch to AOL is on the cards.

  11. Ok let's try this:

    Bring up the Run menu (Windows Key + R) or Start > Run on the Start Menu.

    Now type "regsvr32 Softpub.dll Mssip32.dll Initpki.dll" without the quotes
    and press Ok.

    It's worth a shot! :)

  12. Come on, you cannot seriously expect the average user to start modifying the
    registry of windows, now can you?! I've been facing the same error on and off
    (if it does work from time to time, how can it be necessary add things to the
    registry?), and I use this computer predominantly for work. If I modify my
    registry and this computer crashes, I am in a whole world of trouble.
    One would think that Microsoft would be able to come up with a tested,
    proven and most of all, more user friendly way of fixing problems like this?
    I've been receiving numerous different error messages ever since live
    messenger was released, and it is getting rather pathetic. How about a new,
    more stable version??

    OK, seems to work now, I went to Tools->Options->Connection->Connection
    TroubleShooter, it found a problem with Key Ports and I pressed the Repair

    Still not 100%, sometimes busy, sometimes disconnects

    Something to do with the Firewall???

    This happened when I upgraded from 8.01 to 8.1

    Hi there,
    I'm having the error 8100030e since this morning. I've tried everything that
    was suggested here and nothing. Messenger is only able to connect for a few
    seconds and it goes off almost immediately.

    Apparently I'm not the only one, any idea when this problem will be solved?
    Yahoo messenger works perfectly.

    I've had this problem every morning this week. Usually by about 8am PST it
    resolves itself and I'm online. Not so, this morning I can't get on at all.
