ok. I have just brought 2 new vista home premium computers from dell to replace very old ones. Both are working execellent except for one which is having major problems with Windows Live Messenger. It refuses to let me sign in, always get a error message "81000378" about my contact list not being available, yet if i go to the other computer it will let me sign on with no problems. I really want msn working on this computer, i have tried uninstalling, restarting and then installing again, didnt work. I tried various solutions such as adding the msn servers into the hosts file, flushing the DNS, etc but nothing

can anyone help me with this? this is really starting to annoy me, and i mean its brand new it should work.

You could try Trillian, or any of the other IM programs, just to see if you get the same errors.


Or, have you tried calling Dell? If so, what was their response?
