    I can log into Windows messenger, my contact list will appear, but not even 3
    minutes and a error comes up " Windows Live Messenger has encountered a
    problem and needs to close, we are sorry for the inconvenience". I have
    uninstalled and reinstall Windows messenger several times today. What is the
    problem? This is very aggrivating.

  3. Hi Steve!

    This is regarding the 81000314

    I don't feel comfortable in changing anything in the registry. This is a
    very tricky part of the operating system. Any other suggestion. Or if I have
    to fix something in the registry, where I i use registry.exe? and
    what keys is it located of the registry?
    Please let me know
    thank you

    The registry keys don't do anything for me. I tried WebMessenger but I still
    can't get in. Strangely, this is the error message WebMessenger gave me:

    "We can't sign any more people in right now. Please try signing in again

    What the heck is going on?

    I have done none of the suggested thing accept run the repair option and I
    can and am logged in on a back up e-mail/windows live account on messenger.
    But like everyone else I can't seem to access with my Ginbug69 account. Fix
    or no fix.. this is rediculous, please advise when this issue no longer
    exists. I have had this account for nearly 13 years now and I will not be
    giving it up now after everything I have been through with it. Thank you and
    have a nice day. Fix it swiftly please.

  9. I am also having trouble logging in, my problem started just yesterday, my
    wife has been having the problem for a couple of weeks. But my problem seems
    to be a bit different, I have to disable my firewall (CA security), then both
    myself and my wife can successfully sign in, other wise I like everyone else
    gets the spinning only, no error messages. Why do I have to disable my
    firewall to log in????

    I'm sorry, but I don't believe you are telling the truth here. I had no
    problerm signing in until 5 minutes ago, and then after repeated clicking
    try-again button (about 40 times) suddenly it signed in. Time you people
    stop treating us as stupid, and just give it to us straight - and then your
    half cooked reply, with no technical fix attached - what is that about? Are
    you trying to make it difficult for us on purpose? Think man!

    Here's the "tech" fix he was talking about:

    Delete handshaking policy cache in windows Live Messenger 8.1:
    - Exit Messenger completely (right click the Messenger tray icon and choose
    - Open the registry editor (Start > Run > regedit) and navigate to:
    HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows Live\Communications Client
    - Remove the sub key: Shared
    - Close registry editor
    - Restart Messenger

    Note: always be careful when editing the registry. Removing the wrong keys
    can cause serious problems for Windows.

  12. This might be completely irrelevant but I keep getting this when I want to
    recover my gamertag.

    "Can't sign in to xbox live. Make sure storage device is connected and that
    you are connected to the internet.


    Also to add, everything is connected and functioning until the loading
    screen. When it is "recovering", live disconnects. Any suggestions or point
    me to whoever can help me?
