This recently occured while i was using Windows Live Messenger
i tryed to sign it and it said 'Windows Live messenger can not log you in at the time please try again later 80048820'
After many more attempts to login it said
You have tryed to log in numeroues times a firewall may be blocking msn...

When i troubleshoot
It says everythings fine apart from 'KEYPORTS'
I have Norton Anti-Virus
Installed but its a old one
and i tryed disabling until system restart nothing happens..
Windows live messenger worked for about 5 months then this happened
The time is set correctly on my computer and i tryed to re-install W.L.M
and it didnt work
ive tryed installing Msn messenger 7.5 and still the same error
ive tryed all the
'REGSVR32' strings (Softpub,wintrust,initpki)
It still doesnt work
But what i find interesting is when i turn my computer on
I get a list of user accounts i choose my account
and i try login to msn it doesnt work
but then one day i was on Phillip and i pressed switch user
and i went onto my brothers User account
i tryed to logon to msn messenger and it worked perfectly fine
so its something on my Windows xp user account
thats causing the problem???

My os is
Windows Xp Proffesional
Not sure which SP

Somebody please helping My computer is really 'BLEEPING' me off

Try these out:

Click Start, and then click Run.
In the Open box, type regsvr32 softpub.dll and then click OK.
Restart MSN Messenger.


In Internet Explorer, click Tools and then click Internet Options.
In the Internet Options dialog box, go to the Connections tab.
Click LAN Settings
Untick the Use a proxy server for your LAN (These settings will not apply to dial-up or VPN connections) checkbox.
Click OK and OK.

I have gone thru the MSN forums and a lot of people had the same errors. After they corrected the time settings it appeared to be ok
