    I cannot sign into messenger. It says the service is unavailable with error
    code: 8007007e. It's been down for over a week. What should I be doing to
    connect? MSN is the only method of communication I have with my mother, as
    she is halfway across the world. Please help!

  2. Greetings Melissa,

    This error indicates a problem with Messenger on your machine, not a problem with the
    service.

    You may be able to quickly solve the problem by installing the following components simply by
    downloading the MSI files linked following and just running them to install:
    http://messenger.jonathankay.com/redir/w3rc/dw20.asp
    http://messenger.jonathankay.com/redir/w3rc/msvcrt.asp
    http://messenger.jonathankay.com/redir/w3qfe/contacts.asp

    After these are installed, try Messenger again.

    I am having the same problem, and I've tried installing all 3 of those links
    you posted and I still get the same error message, and I've uninstalled and
    reinstalled it a few times, and I can't seem to get it to sign in no matter
    what, I always get that error code. Is there something else I can try? It
    worked fine for months it just started doing this the other day.

    THE SOLUTION - Even if zapmessenger doesn't work for you.

    Okay, I finally figured out how to fix it on my computer after about a week.
    I found Jonathon's other site....
    http://messengergeek.spaces.live.com/blog/cns!E3785B1281BBDA1!1723.entry
    and I went there and I uninstalled everything I had on my computer on that
    page using the run commands. That took about 10 minutes, then I scrolled back
    up to the windows live and downloaded the messenger.msi and all the .msi
    files for what he says I also need to install. Then I ran all the other .msi
    files first (you can install all these before the messenger.msi is finished
    downloading) And then I ran the messenger.msi last. Then I went
    Start>Programs>Windows Live> Messenger, opened it up, and signed in and
    BEHOLD! NO ERROR CODE 8007007e! Soo I finally got it back up and running.
    Hope that helps!
