Running XP. Problem started with Yahoo about a week ago. Tried uninstall/reinstall, to no avail; tried using older versions of Yahoo Messenger with zero luck. Started the other day with MSN Messenger; tried uninstall/reinstall, and older versions of program. No luck. Noticed my Skype won't connect, and now, neither will my IRC.
Didn't install any new software or hardware that might explain any of this.
The MSN Messenger error code I get is: 80072efd.
I've scanned six ways from Sunday for any kind of Malware with numerous programs, including (but not limited to) all the favorites like HijackThis, Spybot, and Adware SE.
The only common factor in all of this, aside from program failure, is the mention of firewalls. Problem is, I'm not running any firewalls.
This has pretty much left me beating my head against the wall trying to nail this one down.
