MSN Messenger goes into sign-out mode...

Q: MSN Messenger goes into sign-out mode...

Hi...When I sign on to MSN Messenger 6.1, it works OK, but after a few minutes of being idle, it goes into a 'signing out' mode and the only way I can back into it, is by rebooting. I just installed the MS Win Security Update, Feb 2004 and in the same package, there was a freebee antivirus and firewall software (EZ Armor LE) which I installed too. Could these be the cause of my problems?? I would appreciate any suggestions how I can get back to using Messenger normally. My OS ..win98 se...IE 6

Preferred Solution: MSN Messenger goes into sign-out mode...

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/download.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

related to my other post - i thought i'd clarify it again, because i still can't get rid of it. how do i get rid of the SIGN IN bit? With that bit, if you press sign in, you can automatically get into my MSN Messenger list. I want it to automatically prompt me for the e-mail address and password. How do you do that?

i have this problem lately, i try to sign into windows live messenger, and halfway through the process, a window appears on the screen saying that the program can't sign in at this time, it suggests i might have a problem with my firewall or proxy settings. i used to sign in just fine but i did some changes in the registry due to some other issue i had, not all the changes were very knowingly, that might be the cause, i don't know. anyway, it shows error code: 80048820 extended error code:80048416. when i run the troubleshoot tool it shows that there are problems with the host files and the keyports.

can anyone help me? I've been having this annoying problem which i can't connect no matter what messenger i use
not even skype, sometimes im luckier when im signing in on MSN, even YM won't let me sign in, even trillian! when i can't log in on msn, i try to choose the troubleshoot option, and it says that the problem is with the firewall. i turned off my firewall and my anti-virus and i still can't connect
another computer connected to the same router can't connect too.. is it a router problem?

A:Cant sign in on any messenger

Yes, is the firewall problem but it's router firewall not your personal. Try to disable your router firewall or add some more rule allowing all port for MSN, Skype, YM.

Sometime ago, i can't date the point in time i tried to use msn messenger, however at random my msn messenger stopped working. I'm not sure exactly sure, i just can't sign in anymore. I looked in the connections, and ran the test. It's good up to the point it tries to reach the Proxy. So, i'm thinking it can't go online... I go further, to repair the problem and it sais that it can't open Internet Explorer. However, this browser is not blocked. So I reinstall the program only now it's Windows Live Messenger and the Windows Live Mail. Both have the same problem, they can't connect.

I can't decipher the problem, i'm only guessing that, it's not seeing the wireless connection. I'm not sure about this. Any Help??
I deleted the Microsoft > MSNMESSENGER on the regedit... still nothing..
MSN error code... 80048820
Extended code 80048439

Solved: The problem was that proxy server needed to be checked for automatically detect settings instead of a set address.

I have been trying since Thursday to sign into MSN but I can't. An error comes up and says "We were not able to sign you in. There may be a problem with our service or with your Internet connection.
Internet Explorer works fine for me, but when I try to access MSN from IE, it says the Page Cannot be Displayed. I wondered if it was a problem with my computer (XP) or if it's something else.
I can't sign into messenger either. I downloaded the Windows Live Messenger and still cannot sign in.

So this might sound a little lame, but my msn won't sign in on the desktop. I just rebooted after having done an auto update and msn just sits there in the process of signing in (it doesn't crash, though). Works fine on the laptop and when I try signing in on the desktop while signed in on the laptop, it disconnects me on the laptop, saying that I've signed in on a different machine. Which is fine, except that it still hasn't signed in on the desktop - it's as if it's halfway in between. When I try the reverse, it signs in fine again on the laptop and on the desktop I get:

'Signing in to the Windows Live Messenger failed because the service is temporarily unavailable. Please try again later.

Error code: 81000323'

Going into the connection settings on messenger shows everything is connected fine (including .NET). I tried 2 different versions of messenger: 8.0.0812 and 8.0.0729 (I think). Same prob. Tried reinstalling both; tried rebooting - nothing.

4 days ago I got signed out of WLM and when I tried to sign back in I got the message "We can't sign you into WLM ... service is unavailable 8100030d." Since then everytime I've tried to log in I get the same message.

I did some searching and found a few things but nothing worked.

I uninstalled and re-downloaded messenger
I have the newest version of messenger
I created a new account but still couldn't log in with that.

I disabled time zone alarm

A:Auto-Messenger Sign in..

i had the same problem with the windows messenger. it's built into outlook or outlook express or both so everytime you open email it would load and then won't let you unload it. there are settings that supposedly make it not open but, they didn't work for me. the only thing i found that worked was an add-on to lavasoft's ad-aware spyware software. the software is pretty popular and seems to work well (it's downloadable from the lavasoft web site, both free and pay versions). if you already have their spyware software, just download the messenger control add-on and activate it. no more messenger. yay!

Hi Guys

I was trying to register with Windows Messenger (Windows Live ID). One of the entries is my e-mail address. I entered it properly, but when I finished with the page, it returned with this message:
"The portion of your e-mail address that follows the @ symbol is part of a "reserved domain" such as live.com, hotmail.com, msn.com or passport.com. Please type a different e-mail address"

I know I entered my address correctly (tried it several times). Any thoughts?

i have a big problem. It has made me reformat 4 times now. Here's the problem:
I bought new components and installed Vista Business 64bit, and everything worked fine, but then all of a sudden my browsers stop connecting (IE7 says "waiting for reply from www.google.com"), MSN messenger and Xfire can't sign in, none of my programs can update (including Windows Update), also, uTorrent can seed, but cannot update trackers. Oh, and i can ping any IP or site i want. Also, immediatly after Windows starts, i get a couple of seconds of everything working (Messenger and Xfire sign in, browser works,..., so it seems like whatever is causing my problem has to load itself and it doesn't do it while Windows is booting. One more thing, if i go into Safe Mode with networking, my connection works fine.

I've downloaded MSN Messenger again and run "repair" but nothing changes. I've turned off McAfee firewall in case that was it and created new hotmail accounts (now back on). When signing out of passport it won't let me sign out of messenger (the red cross), but I wasn't aware I was in!

This problem revolves around MSN Messenger (BETA). My sister (the one with the sign in problem in her log in) or I will not want to create another account on the computer, because personally I haven't removed her last one because of it.

It happily signs in my log in, she has told me it also works on my mothers, but just doesn't seem to work on hers. But whenever she trys to get it to run, it just comes up with the first attachment (no.1). Clicking on troubleshoot only tells us that there could be a problem with the firewall (which I don't think it is), or to check/change the proxy settings, which if I had to change around would require your help.

But there was one time before the process of reinstalling it that just clicking on the sign in button did nothing.

Any more questions, ask, otherwise help us here.

To sum up my problems:

* one account won't sign in on the latest messenger
* this account works on different computers on the latest messenger (but not mine)
* it also signs in no problem from a different computer on my network (ala same IP address)
* every other account on the latest messenger works normally

I've tried the same timezone and data (and all that crap), all the dlls registering (although one didn't work), I've told the family safety crap to get lost, it's completely removed and the account isn't registered under it any more.

I've even repaired Vista (reinstalled it or wutevs). And the error code 810030d help files just gives me crap that I've followed and doesn't work.

Anyone got any ideas what I could do?

And yes, this really pisses me off simply because I can't understand why I can't sign on, and the fact that I've used this account for approximately 3 and a half years, it has my XBL account linked, all my social networking sites linked, HIH, forums and such, and I don't want to let go of this account just to be forgotten.

I'm really sorry for the aggressiveness of this post, not meant to offend, this has been an ongoing problem for weeks, and I just can't get my head around it, it's probably that part that annoys me most. Also, my account worked fine in the beta, and it works fine on older versions.

Hi, I haxe windows XP and MSN messenger 6.1. All was fine till about a week ago when I opened messenger and all my stored email addresses were gone. I have to now manually type in the email address(sign in address)everytime i use messenger. This also happens on windows messenger as well.

Also.. I no longer receive an alert when i get new email. To find out if i have new email i have to log out of messenger and then log back in ,where i will see "1 new mail". I have checked the settings and " alert me when i have new mail" option is checked. After i have viewed the email, the "1 new email" notice no longer reverts to "0 new email" but still says "you have 1 new mail" until i sign out and then sign back in.

I have contacted "MSN Messenger Live tech support" on two occasion and both have gotten me to do the same processes. I have followed step by step and still same problem.

These are the steps I have taken:

remove every user and password stored in your computer
remove your user credentials of the computer
delete any old files and cache that may be causing a conflict in Windows Live Messenger:

delete any old files and cache that may be causing a conflict in Windows Live Messenger:
Restart your computer.

Register the Secure Sockets Layer

Reinstall MSXML3 library

I did all of these steps twice and still the same outcome.

Now, anyone who is on my PC can sign into my account without a password. How do I change this? I've looked in the messenger menus and right clicked the icon and had a look, but can't find anything that applies. Help!

Hey guys, this problem just started two-three days ago. I havn't change anything to my system configuration software or hardware.

Each time I'm trying to sign in to MSN Messenger 7.5, the whole system freezes and I need to kill the programm using the task manager to unfreeze the system.

I've scanned for any virus with Avira AntiVir Personal Edition, Onlince TrendMicro HouseCall, Online Symantec VirusScan...

I've scanned for any spyware with Ad-aware and SpyBot 1.4...

A few days ago I had a freaking thing called SpywareQuake making a lot of pop-up. I uninstalled it using the Roguescanfix and smitRem files and instructions available here: http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/forums/topic47826.html .

I have no router, a freaking powerful computer, tested my HDD with WD diagnostic, RAM with memtest, no problemo found...

When I google this problem, I can see that most people just started having this issue in june 2006.

EDIT: yes I saw the sticky post and went to the websites to find a solution to my problem...

After using the "control userpasswords2" to enter the password manager and get rid of some friend's and other people accounts from my messenger list, messenger is not storing any user information anymore. The worst thing is that even my own account details are missing and I'm getting really tired of having to re-type my hotmail address and password every time I want to log on to messenger

What's wrong??

For about three days, WLM has been asking me to sign in, even tho I see it running. I have used Add/Remove programs to remove and re-install, but the sign-in box keeps popping up. After 10 minutes or so, Messenger will shut down . Any ideas on what is causing the problem, or how to fix it....Thanks from newbie me
