    After upgrading from MSN 7.5, I am experiencing the same login problems
    reported here.
    I ran the .reg file, restart WLM, and when trying to connect I get a failed
    login error message with code 8004882c.
    If i click on the Retry button, I go into the endless login thing....

    Any help?

    My live is back "alive".
    I pretty much gave up after last night. Attempted again four hours ago on a
    workable live (one which someone else was able to log on with a different
    account) and didn't work.
    Then I just saw this post,
    http://www.microsoft.com/communitie...&tid=4e79db92-bfe7-4d3a-9ba1-15ecb5cba02c&p=1
    Decided to try again. Deleted my 3rd redownload file and redownloaded from
    msn website again. It's all functioning fine now. I guess I should have just
    waited and no work would have been necessary :D
    Hope it's working out for everyone!

  10. Greetings,

    You can also try this.

    Go to Start, run, then type "regedit"

    Navigate to HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\microsoft\MSNMessenger\Policies

    Delete the key "contacts.msn.com"

    Then, try launching Windows Live Messenger again.
